In the late 1950 some of this land was utilised for Allotments. They are still there today in 2014.

Somewhere in the centre between Langley Villas & Afton House is Heathfield House. (As per my 1912 Map). What a shame these properties were demolished to make way for Reyrolles expansion.

This was known as the Copperworks Pond. It was a man made reservoir & when the Tharsis Sulpher & Copper Company pulled out of Hebburn the reservoir was left unfenced & dangerous. Kids, myself included knew how dangerous it was. It was constructed with brick sides that sloped steeply to possibly 30ft deep. We used to catch sticklebacks in it in the late 1940s early 50s. One Saturday afternoon around 1950 ish a local lad called Colqhoun from William St area drowned in it. In previous years other children had drowned in it. Today Health & Safety would have made sure it had been filled in .

I remember this wooden bridge in the 50s. On this photo a rail track ran over it to the Staiths where Tenant's chemicals & raw products were loaded & unloaded. Amazingly I have a photo of that little bridge.

The Tharsis Staiths where copper ore was brought in from their own mines in Spain. The finished copper ingots would also have been loaded onto boats here.

There was a small terrace of houses that belonged to the Tenant's Chemical Works called 'Tyne View Tce'. A relative of mine rented the one closest to Prince Consort Rd from the 1930s through to the 1950s & it it's own tennis court, indoor bathroom & hot water & the remains of Tenant's telephone system. My rare photo shows part of the terrace
