Scope and Content Former Leven Shipyard, Dumbarton, Dunbartonshire This was the shipbuilding yard of William Denny and Brothers, who were renowned for small high-speed and other specialist passenger vessels. The yard closed in the early 1960s, and the site was then used for a number of purposes. This view shows the site from Dumbarton Castle. The former fitting-out basin is in the foreground, being used as a timber yard. The large shed to the rear was the pre-fabrication shop, and was being used for building oil-rig components. Since 1977 much of the yard has been cleared. The Ship Model Experiment Tank, the first commercial one in the world, has been preserved and is managed by the Scottish Maritime Museum.
