' Gas works, as I was growing up North Shields I remember the gas works not because of the odour but the size of the walls that surounded it. I was just a small boy but those walls looked huge to me. I recall it's demolition back in the 70's the land was rebuilt as a school a replacement for the 'Western Board school that had been nearbye.
