Connecting Noss Marina’s Past

As part of the regeneration of the Noss Marina site, Premier Marinas is looking at how to maintain a link with the history of the Philip’s shipyard within its proposed masterplan.

Central to this is the memorial that was restored and inscribed with the names of the 20 workers who lost their lives when the former shipyard was bombed during the Second World War. The memorial was placed on temporary display at Noss Marina in 2010 with a view to moving it to a permanent location after a couple of years. However, the relocation was unable to take place due to the marina going into administration in 2013.

Premier Marinas, who acquired Noss Marina earlier this year, is now consulting on its draft plans for the site and as part of this would like to hear people’s views on the memorial. They are also interested in hearing about your memories of the site and particularly welcome any information you may have about its history.

Pete Bradshaw, Chief Executive of Premier Marinas said: “We understand how important Noss has been – and continues to be – to the local community and want to sensitively incorporate the history of Noss as we create a thriving future for the site.

“As well as looking at how best to incorporate the memorial, we are considering developing a building, as part of our plans, which would include a public café and heritage space. We have had some early conversations about this and are looking forward to sharing our thoughts with local residents at our public exhibitions and hearing their views.”
