Shipyards
Here we hope to introduce you to some of the famous shipyards from around the world, some old and some new.
If you have any old photographs of shipyards and you want to feature them here then please contact the website and we will be happy to show them here.
The first shipyard to feature here may be a bit of a surprise it is The Smith's Dock Shipyard in Middlesbourgh, in the North East of England, this was the lead yard for the Flower Class Corvette, and it was this yard that won the order for there design for a small escort vessel that was very much needed just before the outbreak of World War II.

Another famous shipyard was the Swan Hunter yard a bit further north of Smith's Dock in Walsend just outside of Newcastle upon Tyne.
This yard was a centre in the North East of England for the build of many fine ships.

In the history of shipbuilding in the British Isles it would be remiss in fact impossible not to mention the powerhouse of shipbuilding that was the River Clyde, with some of the most famous of all ships built on this small stretch of water and the following photograph captures the time well.
