The 'Royal Hotel' just inside the Hebburrn side of the border. It was nicknamed 'The White Lead' because of the white dust from the Lead Works across the road. Today it has been renovated and is called 'The White Lead'. pics on my www.oldtyneside.co.uk website

The Fuel Terminal at Jarrow alongside the Slake known locally as 'Jarra Slacks'. It was a large expanse of mud at low tide but at high tide more like a lake.

These two hills are Ballast Hills. We also had them in Hebburn and Jarrow. When the old coal ships returned they needed something to weigh them down or they'd just bob around high in the water, so they'd fill up with sand and gravel called ballast. This ballast then had to be emptied before they could fill up with coal hence ballast hills were created along the riverside. Today the modern shipping uses water as ballast which can be pumped out quickly.

Palmer's Iron Works. People used to say that at one time iron ore came into one end of the Palmers complex and iron/steel ships made from that ore came out at the other end. The slag that came from the Blast Furnaces was taken by rail and dumped on the Jarrow/Hebburn border. This is how the Slag Heap was created . In later years that slag heap was removed and the crushed slag became hardcore for the roads.

These were called 'The Black Steeths' (Staiths) hence the road in Hebburn that led towards it was Black Lane (Later Black Rd). Photos on my www.oldtyneside.co.uk website
