3rd-Class Forward Well Deck

Monday April 15th, 1912 at 12:15 A.M.

The Forward Well Deck on C Deck was one of the two well decks of the Titanic. The main features are the #2 and #3 cargo hatches. The well decks were Steerage zones, and the forward well deck had an entrance leading to the Third Class Open Space on D Deck. On deck, there was a stairwell leading up to First Class area on B Deck, but it was blocked by a waist-high gate with a sign telling steerage passengers to stay in their area. This area and the Aft Well Deck were connected by the main corridor on E Deck called Scotland Road.

The infobox image is a rendering from the upcoming game Titanic: Honor and Glory. It shows the Well Deck, flooded. This was the case on the real Titanic at about 1:10 A.M.

Wreck[edit | edit source]

Each side of the well deck featured two removable sections to facilitate loading cargo. The fixed center section of each side hangs sideways. The removable sections are gone. The hatch covers for holds #2 & 3 are gone. The electric cranes were wrenched from the crane rack and lay against the C-deck wall.
