Inchgreen Drydock

 Inchgreen dry dock opened in 1964,known as the" Big Dock"it was hoped that it would bring a lot of new business to Greenock,however by 1967 the company that ran the dock went into liquidation .

The dock has had a chequered history and its fair to say that it never filled its full potential,the dock is now owned by Clydeport,they apparently want to fill the dock in and build houses .

Just up the road at Ferguson's Marine Port Glasgow the shipyard has expanded and completely rebuilt its yard,the owner has shown interest in using the dry dock at Inchgreen,

Sadly the cranes have now been demolished.
