The Fairfield Heritage team visited the shipyard recently, filming workers past and present. We spoke to a variety of people including electricians, managers, store assistants, all of whom had previous experience of working at the yard. Contributors talked about what it was like to work at the yard, and were asked questions on topics like labour relations, working conditions and shipyard humour.
The footage will be used in our heritage spaces, as well as for educational purposes too!
A big thank you to everyone involved.
