Govan Dry Docks

This evening, I am posting information on a unique, tangible link with Glasgow’s shipbuilding past. This is the former Govan Dry Docks which were built between 1869 and 1898 to facilitate repair and maintenance of ships’ hulls. These docks were closed in 1988. A contentious proposal to build up to 800 new homes on the site is currently under consideration by the relevant authorities.

Govan is part of Glasgow in S.W. Scotland.

For more information on Govan refer yesterday’s blog post.
