This looked like a nice little pond bit it was the old pit shaft of a 'Bell Pit.' about 100ft deep or more. A lot of rubble from the demolition of old streets in Jarrow were dumped into it. .

Former Quarry? In this photo this area of land has returned back to field. But on Ordinance Survey Maps from 1916-1938 this land is shown as a Quarry! Before 1916, and after 1938 it is just field. The land was built upon in the 1960's by William Leach Builders to form the Ettrick Road Estate.

This building in Monkton was called 'Monkton Home' and was a 'hospital' where men with learning difficulties lived. The home didn't house young boys with learning difficulties, just men.

The Bowes Line alongside the Slag Heap & Jarrow Park. Coal trucks used the line to take coal from inland coal mines to the Staiths at the riverside where it was loaded onto Colliers. Photo from my www.oldtyneside.co.uk website

This Sports Ground was shared by Jarrow Metal Works, the Tube Works & Palmers . It was called the METUPA which incorporated the first two letters of each company. It was situated in Monkton & is still there today in 2013 with modern facilities. This photo from my www.oldtyneside.co.uk website that I've attached was taken at the METUPA & you can see the Slag Heap in the background

The Slag Heap. This was created by Jarrow Palmer's molten slag from the Blast Furnaces being dumped for years & years. It was removed by using explosives & a Crusher which turned the slag into different grades of gravel for road making. So it was waste material that was eventually sold to help build roads & foundations.
