Few people outside Barrow are aware of its proud history and how this one-time small hamlet became the world’s largest producer of steel and iron and then grew into a major ship building force - all within the space of 40 years!
A staggering 373 merchant ships, 312 submarines and 148 naval surface ships were built in the Barrow yards, including illustrious names like the one-time world’s largest ship, the 103,000 ton oil tanker British Admiral, and HMS Upholder, the most successful Royal Navy Submarine in World War II.
Thankfully, most ended up being scrapped, their metal recycled, a much happier fate than those sunk or blown up by enemy action. The fortunate majority ended their lives in much the same way as an old car, although on a much grander scale. Just like cars, old ships are decommissioned and scrapped for cash, taking care that any serviceable parts are put to good use.
As with cars, the remaining metal is crushed and re-used, re-emerging in new forms. It's interesting to speculate how many boats at sea or cars on the road had reverse roles in previous lives. That’s the under-appreciated point about scrap yards; they represent recycling at its best.
With metal prices still high, there’s never been a better time to scrap your car for cash and help get your finances ship shape again in time for Christmas. Barrow in Furness Scrap Car Collections - helping you keep your head above water, in an environmentally-friendly way.
