LEITH SHIPYARDS CONTINUE

It’s only right I suppose that what was once a thriving shipyards should now continue in some form or other but in a different medium, in this age of the internet the Leith Shipyards story continues in the shape of the website at www.leithshipyards.com where as much good information and histories about the many ships built in the Leith Shipyards of Henry Robb will be laid out for posterity.


There is of course so much more to the website than the ships built in Leith, as this is a site for anyone with an interest in ships or the sea.

As it is an ongoing and ever changing subject, more information and interesting stories come to light all the time and they are in turn included into the website, including updates to the Naval Ships pages where the feature recently has been on the “Flower Class Corvettes” built in the Leith Shipyards of Henry Robb, a fascinating story as those little fighting ships helped the British Isle ability to continue on with the fight against tyranny just as much as the famous “Spitfire” but without the glory and proper recognition.

So this and so much more is all included at the website, and the maritime shop is building as well with lots of new museum quality fully assembled models along with some great maritime artwork, not to mention maritime books as well.
