The Finnieston Crane
4 Finnieston Quay, Glasgow G3 8HL
The Finnieston Crane stands sentinel over the Clyde, one of the few surviving remnants of the city’s industrial heritage. With a lifting capacity of 175 tonnes, it is one of only 11 giant cantilever cranes in the world, built in 1936 to lift heavy locomotives onto ships ready for export. The crane has been out of use for many decades but remains a much-loved feature of the Glasgow skyline and a favourite subject and prop for artists, photographers and filmmakers. Few Glaswegians haven’t wondered what the view from the top of the crane is like…and what’s up there! Join us for a virtual adventure up the crane and learn about the ambitions plans of the Big Cran Co for the future of this Glasgow icon.
