Hebburn Cemetery's two little chapels. One was for Catholics and one was for Protestants. Even in death the different religions were kept apart because the Graves for the Catholics had to be in the RC section and graves for Protestants in the C of E section.

This rough road was a continuation of Prince Consort Rd and led to the Rubbish dump in the 40s and 50s. Hebburn UDC Bin Waggons drove back and forth and the rubbish will still be there today as it was covered over with soil and landscaped.

Rows of coal wagons. The coal was brought to the Staiths where the coal was loaded into the colliers. It came down from Springwell using gravity but controlled by a wire rope. Once emptied they'd be hauled back up.

This area was known locally as 'The Bauxite'. Not a lot is recorded about this 'British Aluminium Co' apart from it produced Aluminium Hydroxide from the ore known as 'Bauxite'. A lot of waste known as red mud was a by-product of the process & it was dumped on the site producing hillocks/mounds of this red mud. It was fenced off to keep people off it.
