Given evolving public health considerations, the Fairfield Heritage team have taken a difficult decision to postpone public access to the Fairfield Heritage visitor centre until further notice.


Porthole to the Past – photographic journey down the Clyde, 1940s – 1970s

Wednesday, 6th November 2019

Gavin Stewart is an Electrical & Controls Engineer with a passion for industrial and maritime heritage.
This is a presentation of photos from his collection containing a mix of medium format negative scans and slides including some official yard photos from James Lamont & Co (which were rescued from destruction when the company ceased trading in 1989) all dating from 1940s to 1970s. It’s a trip down memory lane! 
Unfortunately due to the uncertainty around the coronavirus and in consultation with our team of volunteers, we have decided to close Fairfield Heritage until further notice. Please keep check back for updates!

Between the mid-nineteenth and twentieth centuries, the heyday of shipbuilding on the Clyde, Govan was at the centre of the industry.

Whatever your age or experience we can offer a range of learning opportunities. From education groups to community visits.

We are looking for volunteers. To find out more about the huge variety of opportunities to support us, go to Get Involved in the Heritage site.

There's lots going on at Fairfield Heritage Centre. Get the latest Fairifeld news and find out what's on via our EVENTS section.

Once described as the jewel in the crown of Govan, the restored building provides a magnificent venue for all for all kinds of events.
