Historic Scotland looks to make Carrick shipshape
Historic Scotland have commissioned DTZ to undertake an appraisal of options for the SV Carrick, also known as the City of Adelaide.

The A listed ship is currently languishing at Irvine harbour but the heritage warchdog is keen to assess the feasibility of transporting the vessel to Sunderland or South Australia or a “different location” in Scotland.

The Australian city of Adelaide has previously sent a team to inspect the vessel with a view to restoring the ship in recognition of its role in transporting early settlers from Britain to the New World.

The alternative is a managed deconstruction of the ship.
