Whitley Bay, Northern Promenade, shelters
Three concrete shelters shown on the third edition Ordnance Survey of 1919. Simple three sided shelters, open to the sea, with timber roofs (covered by felt) supported on decorative cast iron brackets. Originally the sides were open, supported by cast iron columns, but apart from one side wall of the middle shelter, these side walls have been blocked in. The north and south shelters retain both columns, the middle shelter only retains one of them. Only the south shelter retains a full length of bench seating.
