This pond was about 100ft deep and had been there from the days when the Monks mined coal from a seam called 'The Monkton Seam'. It was what was called a Bell Pit. A lot of rubble from the demolition of old Jarrow was dumped into it.

This was what we called the Island Lake. The 4 lakes were created in the 1860s -70s as private ponds for the Ellison family. The water that filled them came from the little burn that ran from Wardley area . Photos on my website www.oldtyneside.co.uk

This was the pit shaft that the men in 'sinkers row' (Elmfield Tce) sunk. Today it will be capped off and a new housing estate has been built there.

This bridge is still there today in 2015 and was known locally as 'spuggies bridge'. It spans the railway line to Sunderland.

This row of houses is Elmfield Tce but it was nicknamed 'Sinkers Row' in those days because they were built to house the men who sunk a local coalmine shaft. The row of houses are still there today in 2015. Photos of it are on my www.oldtyneside.co.uk website

The Pontop Line that the Bowes coal trucks used to take coal to the Staiths at Jarrow. When we were kids in the 50s we often hitched a free ride on the slow moving trucks & then we'd get off at Jarrow Park. I knew one lad who lost a leg & another who lost an arm doing this.

This was a valley with a stream running from the lakes to the river Don in Jarrow. We called it 'The Dip' in the 50s & 60s. Because the slagheap was there it went underground via a culvert & it emerged in Pig Sty Avenue in Jarrow & then onto the Don.

The Pump House on the east side of what we called 'The First Lake'. The lake was one of 4 man made lakes that the Ellison family had made as part of their garden. Ellison's were rich Land owners & reside at the large Hebburn Hall. In the 1890s they gave the house to be used as an Infirmary.
