Remains of a Dry Dock crane at Inchgreen
Remains of a Dry Dock crane at Inchgreen
The cranes had been demolished eight days before this picture was taken. The remains shown here are beside the Great Harbour. The view is from high ground beside Knocknairs Hill.

See also NS3075 : Remains of a Dry Dock crane at Inchgreen, taken on the same day, from the same place.

(That item also discusses the original Inch Green from which the Inchgreen area takes its name: an island, all of whose former surface is now incorporated within the present-day shoreline.)

For more information about the demolition, see NS3075 : Final day of the Inchgreen Drydock cranes / NS3075 : Final day of the Inchgreen Drydock cranes / NS3075 : Final day of the Inchgreen Drydock cranes.

As might be imagined, the sound was very loud even when heard from the other side of the Clyde (the demolition took place at about 8:16 on the morning of Sunday 16th July).
