    History of this Location

    Hall Russell began in 1864 in Aberdeen as a marine engine manufacturer and in 1867 began to build iron/steel ships. In 1953 it merged with the adjacent company Alexander Hall, to become Burntisland Shipbuilding. During the 1960s it built the research vessel RRS Discovery for the Natural Environment Research Council but went into liquidation in 1968, to emerge as Hall Russell.

    Shipbuilding in Britain suffered an identity crisis during the 1970s, much as its aircraft industry had done in the late 1950s/early 1960s. The government nationalised the yard in Jul 1977 and it focussed on naval vessels, producing amongst others the Castle Class patrol vessels in the early 1980s, when a covered ship hall had also been built; the class was originally intended to be of six ships but was cut to two. The yard was then privatised in 1986 (undoing the Jul 1977 nationalisation) but was classed as a warship yard and commercial work declined. In 1989 the yard was sold to A&P (Appledore) for repair work, but closed in 1992.

    The site is now Telford Dock and the River Dee Ship Repair Co operate there.
