Brief history

Thomas Scott took over the shipyard of former Goole Shipbuilding and Engineering Company (1874-1876) on South Street, facing onto the Dutch River and built ships there between 1877 and 1902, after which the yard was bought by the Craggs family and became Goole Shipbuilding & Repairing Company.
