NEWS

On the Horizon:

A new two volume history of Greenock- Sugar, Ships & Slavery. This new book from Vincent Gillen is the first 'new' history of the town since 1922. The book recognises the crucial role that the British Empire played in the growth of Greenock - it's existence almost entirely predicated on the slave economies of North America and the West Indies.
