The Shipyard Trust
« on: Apr 01, 2021, 10:27 AM »
The Ship Yard Trust is looking to work to formulate a strategy that permanently acknowledges the industrial heritage of the River Clyde. 

The aim of this project is to have a location on the Clyde where the history of shipyard and engineering achievements can be communicated. 

Quote
The great industrial achievements of the River Clyde in engineering and shipbuilding are widely known not just in the United Kingdom, but around the world. Despite this, there is no single location on the Clyde where this world-class story can be told.

Sounds good, and about time!  Well done on them for at least trying to get something off the ground

Shocking that there's currently nothing at all on the Clyde to commemorate what the river achieved.

I agree Rob, the River Clyde built so many famous ships and it is unbelievable that there is not a museum that celebrates the achievements of Clydeside industries. 

To get this project off the ground it will be necessary for people to respond by donating or sending an email response supporting this project to:

contact@theshipyard.scot

If people do not respond it could be thought to be an indication that there is no interest in the project.  So please take time to have a look at the website and if you can send a response I am sure it will be appreciated.
