HMS Onyx has still to be turned into “Razor Blades”

Former Royal Navy Submarine HMS Onyx ar Barroe January 2014.

Last June following the collapse of the plans for the submarine heritage museum in Barrow came the news that the former Royal Navy Submarine HMS Onyx was to be towed to Hull where it was planned that she would be scrapped.

News about the fate of the submarine has gone quite but the boat has not yet left Barrow, she has been relocated a number of times since she was moved from the berth she has occupied since 2006 when she arrived from Birkenhead, it would appear that she is not fit for sea, and that extensive repairs will need to be carried out before she can be towed to Hull. She currently remains in Barrow awaiting her fate.
