This place was called 'The Bauxite'. When they pulled out of Hebburn ,they left mounds of reddish coloured waste that seemed to get everywhere especially when it was wet. (Bauxite is aluminium ore)

This part of the Power Station became the 'Powerhouse Club' and the work done reorganising the building was done with free labour by the unemployed. It became a meeting place for young people in Hebburn and neighbouring towns. Saturday night dances were very popular .

The 'Reay Gearworks' which started off in the sheds that the Newcastle Shipbuilding erected when they started ship building in 1919. Unfortunately times were hard & they went bust in 1921. By the end of the 1920s Reay Gearworks acquired the sheds as their factory. Later it became Geo Angus & Co gear works then later RW Transmissions. The factory finally closed mid 70s & the land is now a housing estate called Tyne View.
