For 100 years Govan was the centre of shipbuilding on the Clyde. Here some of the finest, most luxurious liners, steamships and naval vessels were designed and launched. Today there are few visual reminders of this once thriving Clydeside industry but the former Fairfield Shipbuilding & Engineering Offices still pay testament to its greatness. Voted one of Glasgow's most admired buildings, this iconic, A-listed edifice has been restored in a £5.8 million project to provide a heritage centre and prestigious office accommodation.

During 2011-14 volunteers helped us to research Govan's unique relationship with the shipbuilding history. The result is a resource facility and exhibition area showing how Fairfield became the "Shipbuildingest Burgh in the World" and the lifeblood of a community.
