Swan Hunter has been an important part of the industrial life of the Tees since 1860, when the shipbuilding company was set up by John Wigham Richardson.

Techniques have changed unimaginably since his day, but the company is still in shipbuilding, and its future looks good.

More than 3,500 jobs will soon be created at the yard after the government gave a £3bn contract for two aircraft carriers to BAE Systems.

Swan Hunter is a partner in the BAE contract, and will manufacture large parts of the carriers at Port Clarence.

There are three 360° views of the yards in this section:
