Description: Construction of these factory buildings began in 1937, as a result of a business partnership between Sir Maurice Denny, Managing Director of the Dumbarton firm Denny Shipbuilders, and Robert Blackburn, of Yorkshire's Blackburn Aeroplane and Motor Company. The site on which the factory stood was called Barge Park; completed machines would be taken across the River Clyde by barge to Abbotsinch airfield.

Aircraft built here included the Blackburn Shark B6 Mark III (a torpedo/spotter/reconnaissance biplane, assembled from components manufactured in Yorkshire), the Short Sunderland (a flying boat patrol bomber, built entirely at this site), and many others.
