FAIRFIELD SHIPYARD OFFICES
Plans to rescue one of Govanís most iconic buildings from an uncertain future have made significant progress following a decision by Historic Scotland to commit funds to secure a new life for the 19th century property.

The Fairfield building, which served as the main offices for Govanís shipyard for more than 100 years, has been lying derelict since 2001 and is on Scotlandís buildings at risk register. Now, an ambitious proposal by Govan Workspace to create business and heritage space is to receive grant aid of £443,642 from Historic Scotland. Glasgow City Council is also lining up to provide financial support.

GOVAN OLD
Following the unification in October 2007 of the three Govan congregations and the decision to make New Govan the principal place of worship, the Church of Scotland and the Kirk Session are keen to identify a use that would both provide future sustainability for Govan Old and respect its historic importance.

The challenge faces particular problems: church buildings are notoriously difficult to adapt for other purposes; Govan Old itself is Grade A-listed and cannot be altered easily; it contains an outstanding collection of one-thousand-year-old stones considered to be a national treasure; a significant body of opinion holds that, because of the siteís status as the oldest known place of Christian worship on the Clyde, the church should remain essentially a church.
