William Pickersgill started building ships in 1838 with Messrs Miller, Rawson and Watson. The firm split in 1845 and Pickersgill opened a yard at Southwick. During World War II, Pickersgill’s took over the neighbouring Priestman yard. The company merged with Austin’s in 1954 and the Southwick yard was redeveloped at a cost of £3 million. The yard closed in 1988.
