    The Garston Ship Breakers closed around about 1997, the remains of 3 ships remain there, most notably the "MV Sound of Seil", which was a Glasgow Clyde ferry, and was brought to Garston, to be converted into a crane barge, and was later partly scrapped by S Evans & Sons.
    Built in 1959 by the Ailsa yard at Troon for British rail’s Southern Region for the Isle of Wight service, and then known as the "MV Freshwater", she then finished her days back on the Clyde from the early 1980s, used by Western Ferries as the "MV Sound of Seil".
