Heritage

The Trust has been at the forefront of developing and delivering local community heritage projects for the last five years. We have a genuine belief that meaningful regeneration requires a senses of civic pride, heritage is a vital building block in that process.

Over the last few years, with the support of Heritage Lottery Fund, Scotland, we have worked with local people to explore the stories behind our industrial past, the town of Port Glasgow and over 200 years of migration. All our leaflets, books and films have been produced by local people – volunteers, school pupils and employees, all of whom achieved qualifications, awards and recognition through their involvement in our projects.

You can see examples of our project materials on our SCRIBD bookshelf and on our YouTube channel.

Our Identity project ran from 2011 – 2013, and an archive of local stories can be found on the website.

Our latest project is centred around the oldest house in Greenock - the Dutch Gable House.
