Maritime House was built in the late 1940’s and built of Portland stone. It was originally the Admiralty Gunnery Establishment with the construction believed to be built to withstand explosions from within.
Portland Stone has been used for many iconic buildings including St Paul’s Cathedral, Buckingham Palace, Cenotaph, Tower of London and the United Nations Building in New York.
The Portland Spy Ring linked to the KGB back in the 1960’s operated from this building providing information about the commissioning of the first nuclear submarine HMS Dreadnought.
The newly declassified documents are on display a the National Archives at Kew in London and the British Royal Navy estimates that the passing of classified information allowed the Russians to build a new, more silent fleet of submarine.
The Portland Spy Ring became world famous and a film of the same name was made in 1964, and was also called the ‘Ring of Treason’ in the USA. The story was also made into TV and radio dramas.;
