Lemington, Tyne Iron Public House
The original Tyne Iron Public House (not to be confused with the Tyne Iron which replaced the Forge Hammer PH in the 1930s HER 17462). The first Tyne Iron pub was situated opposite the Lemington Glassworks and was part of a row of cottages connected with the Tyne Ironworks (exact location unknown). It was from the appearance of the landlord of this pub that the nickname 'Hairy Man's' may have originated.
