NS3974 : Woodyard House

taken 7 years ago, near to Dumbarton, West Dunbartonshire, Great Britain

Woodyard House
Woodyard House
The house was formerly part of a shipbuilding yard, the Woodyard. In the early days of Dumbarton's shipbuilding industry, Archibald McLachlan was based here, building wooden ships, such as the steamer "Trusty" (1814) see NS3975 : Statue of Peter Denny and LinkExternal link for more information.

The yard is now long gone, but the name of NS3974 : Woodyard Road, Dumbarton, alongside which the house stands, commemorates it.

In the 1880s, this house was very much in the heart of the shipbuilding yard; there was a machine shop next to the house, on the north-eastern side, and a larger machine shop at the north-western side. In addition, there was a smithy at the south-eastern side of the house.
