Thanks Rik,
I have seen and posted Wilton which is residing quite near to me, albeit in a much modified (decimated?) state! I suppose they should be ideal candidates to survive for a long time as the hulls wont rust?

Hi John,

Yes it's one 'N' for the spelling. There are still one or two 'Tons' left in the world. IVESTON, KELLINGTON, PACKINGTON, CHEDISTON, DUNKERTON, DURBAN, JACKTON & WILTON. All in various guises.

Rik,
so have I got the spelling wrong? If so I'll gladly update the post in the knowledge that I am not alone, just try doing a Google search on Bronnington :-D But then when you do one on Bronington you get a similar number of results. That's the trouble with warships... show a number prominently but the real name rather more sheepishly. Obviously you must know best, and could perhaps educate myself and Kent as to whether there are any more around?
regards
John J.

Bronington (with one 'N') is still around. She's a museum ship at Birkenhead.

Good looking minesweeper, I don't suppose they are still around?.
