Shipbuilders of Port Glasgow

This striking sculpture Shipbuilders of Port Glasgow is to be found in Coronation Park in Port Glasgow.  It was designed and built by sculptor John McKenna who is based in Ayrshire.

Thirty-three feet high, it dominates the skyline and is a tribute to the local people who worked in the area's shipyards.

Made of stainless steel it is lit up at night by colourful lighting.  The area around the sculpture has a pathway and has now been landscaped.  

There doesn't seem to be a plaque giving details of the work to anyone visiting the area, but you can read more about it on the Inverclyde Council website here.

Ironically the troubled ferry MV Glen Sannox can be seen behind the sculpture.
