A worker from the now closed North Devon shipyard Appledore has written an epitaph in which they say the site is now "empty and soulless".
The piece is signed by D Martin who appears to have worked at the historic shipyard which closed its doors for the last time on Friday 15 March.
It says workers have now been "stripped of togetherness" and "pride".
D Martin also references the reason for the closure, which was announced by owners Babcock International in November last year.
The Appledore shipyard first opened in 1856 at Richmond Dry Dock and was nationalised in the mid 1970s.
When new owners Babcock International announced the site's closure in November last year, it was revealed that the 199 members of staff would be redeployed to Devonport or face redundancy.
The yard is now being advertised on property site JLL.
