Designed and built by our Submarines apprentices, the ‘People. Product. Pride: 150 years of Barrow Shipyard’ heritage sculpture is now on permanent display at Vickerstown Park in Barrow.

The statue depicts Barrow’s shipbuilding heritage through three key elements; the men and women who have worked in the shipyard, the community which the business has served for more than a century and a half, and our long-term partners, the Royal Navy.

Apprentice Designer Lewis Phillips said: “The 150th anniversary is a milestone that we will never get see again, and to be given the opportunity to be a part of that and create this piece has been an honour.

“Having the knowledge that this will be around for generations to come and that we are all able to say we contributed towards this brings us a great sense of pride.”
