Barrow in Furness
Our base in Barrow-in-Furness is on the waterfront at the historic shipyard, working alongside BAE Systems. Barrow has always been at the heart of submarine production for the UK.
The Submarine Delivery Agency (SDA) has over 100 people based in Barrow, and will expand its presence on site over the coming years.
The shipyard overseas the production of the new Dreadnought Nuclear Deterrent submarines and the continued production of the Astute attack submarines.
Alongside the great facilities listed below, the main town with its transport and retail facilities is only minutes away on foot.
Barrow is situated on the Lake District peninsula, on the North West coast of England on the northern shoreline of Morecambe Bay.
It is 20 minutes from the Lake District UNESCO world heritage centre park boundary with outstanding scenery on both road and rail routes.
The Lake District is a self-contained mountainous area with largely unspoilt, but accessible areas of outstanding beauty.
From the M6 leave the motorway at junction 36, then follow the A590 all the way to Barrow.
When travelling from within the Lake District park take the A592 from Bowness along the Eastern shore of Lake Windermere to join the A590 at the foot of Windermere. This takes you straight to Barrow.
