In July we received our first grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund, to run a project exploring the local maritime and industrial heritage of the ship builders Harland & Wolff who were based at the Royal Docks from the 1920s to the 1970s.

We are looking for anyone that remembers the yard to come forward and share their story as part of the project. We are working with Eastside Community Heritage, who will collect the stories and will form part of a touring exhibition in local schools. Please contact office@ech.org.uk or 02085533116 for more details of how you can contribute to your story to the project.
