     These buildings were originally Platers Sheds for the Newcastle Shipbuilding Co who started up in 1919 & went bankrupt 1921. In the late 1920s the sheds were bought by a company called Reay from Gateshead & it became the 'Reay Gear Works. Later it became Geo Angus Gears' & then RW Transmissions. It closed down in the 1970s.

     Tyne View Tce which originally belonged to Tennant's Chemical Works which came to Hebburn in the mid 1800s. Some of my relatives (the McNeill family) lived in one block 1940s to the 50s when it was demolished. They had an indoor bathroom & toilet, a tennis court where I added the Pin & even a phone left over by Tennant's. The pic is from my website www.oldtyneside.co.uk just before they were knocked down.

     The Ballast Hill at Hebburn. In years gone by the boats coming into the Tyne for coal dropped their ballast off & then loaded up with coal. The Ballast in those days was sand/gravel. Photo showing Hebburn man ontop of the hill is from my www.oldtyneside.co.uk website & in the background is Swan Hunter's Ship Building yard at Wallsend.
