Tyne and Wear HER(15744): Hebburn, Hawthorn Leslie Shipyard, plumbers shop - Details
Hebburn, Hawthorn Leslie Shipyard, plumbers shop
Shown on a photograph of 1946 as a brick building with single pitched roof, in a style similar to that of the rigging loft on the west side of the dry dock. Assumed to have been a late 19th century building contemporary with the joiners shop and rigging loft. Only patchy areas of concrete now survive. To the south of the plumbers shop there was a mono-tower crane, but no trace survives.
