Greenock

The Belleville flats, under demolition as of 2008

Greenock is the largest town in Inverclyde, Scotland. Situated on the Firth of Clyde 23 miles west of Glasgow, it is home to approximately 45,000 people (2015). In 1966, the population was 80,000. This decline is typical throughout the west of Scotland.

Greenock was one of only two towns in Scotland to be blitzed during World War 2, the other being Clydebank, 12 miles upstream, across the water. This resulted in a large proportion of the town being rebuilt in the 1950s and 60s.
