About Us
Our objective is to preserve artefacts, documents, pictures and the skills of the shipyard workers that contributed to a record of shipbuilding at Sunderland from 1346 until 1988 when the last shipyard closed. We think this history of shipbuilding and the ships that were built in Sunderland is worth preserving for future generations so that they may know the maritime heritage that their city is built upon. Please take the time to look at our web site and see if you agree.

Get in Touch
We're building up an archive of Sunderland's shipbuilding history, so If you have any info, stories, pictures etc. about the port or the shipyards or the engine works we would love to hear from you. Let us have a look at anything you have. If you have a website that you think might interest our members, let us know and we can link to it. Or if you know of any website with good info tell us about it. You can e-mail us here
