Glebe Sugar House, Greenock Town Trail Plaque, Greenock
The Glebe Sugar House, built in 1840, is the only surviving Sugar House in Greenock which used to have over 20. Sugar refining began in Greenock in 1745 with most of the raw cane sugar arriving on ships from the West Indies.
Abram Lyle was one of the most successful refiners and is credited with the marketing of a waste product from the refining process ... Golden Syrup. In 1921 Lyle merged his company with a rival - Henry Tate - to form the Tate & Lyle company still in existence today.
