Titan Clydebank Crane (#284)
This event has finished
Titan Clydebank is a 46 metre high cantilever crane, built in 1907 in Clydebank, Scotland. The success of John Brown's as a world leading shipyard, was attributable, to the sheer power of the Titan. Its lifting capacity helped John Brown's win many contracts that led to the huge passenger liners and battleships for which it is famous being built here. In 1988 the crane was declared a Category A Listed historical structure and a £3m restoration project was begun in 2005. Now this amazing structure presents a challenge for extreme sports enthusiasts who can abseil, bungee jump or swing from it.
As well as the chance to see the Crane itself, there is a coffee shop, an exhibition and the Drawing Office visitor centre that houses a collection of ship models, memorabilia and historic photos.
