The Rebirth of the Clyde

This is the Story of how the last Commercial Shipyard in Scotland was rescued from closure and now – less than five years later – plans to lead the world in the development of zero-emissions maritime energy.
Presented by John W Morgan, Ferguson Marine Head of Communications who, after a lifetime in advertising and marketing – forsook it all, to return to his family roots in Clydeside shipbuilding.
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. We have also postponed our walking tour and evening talk on 25th March. 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.
