Tyne and Wear HER(2142): Howdon, Commissioner's Staiths (North) - Details
Howdon, Commissioner's Staiths (North)
Water Transport Site
From the 2nd edition Ordnance Survey plan these appear to have been related to the Backworth Colliery Railway (HER ref. 1113), but this is not clear. They were built after 1858, as they do not appear on the 1st edition Ordnance Survey plan. One of two pairs of staiths with this name, the other being HER ref. 2200.
