Titan Crane

A 100-year-old shipyard crane that survived the Clydebank blitz has become Scotland's newest visitor attraction. Known as the Titan Crane, the 150-foot, A-listed structure was in use on Clydeside until the 1970s. Its reinvention as a visitor attraction, at a cost of pound;3 million, is part of a pound;235 million project to regenerate Clydebank's riverside and town centre. The crane, which opened at the beginning of August, will operate until October 22, four days a week, Friday to Monday. A new lift takes 40 visitors at a time to the top of the structure and the viewing platform. A permanent exhibition tells the story of John Brown's shipyard from the 1930s-1960s with archive film of the launches of the "Queen Mary" and the "QE2".
