Abstract

A project by SCAPE, NAS and local volunteers at Newshot Island on the Clyde near Glasgow documented an important ships graveyard dating to the early 20th century. The vessels tell the story of the creation of the Clyde Navigation, represent a significant aspect of the river's history and exemplify the technological and industrial development of the region. The survey and research revealed that the remains on site include a unique survivor – the earliest diving support vessel known to have been recorded, and has resulted in the designation of the remains as a Scheduled Ancient Monument by Historic Environment Scotland.
