Tyne and Wear HER(2225): Hebburn, Coke Ovens - Details
Hebburn, Coke Ovens
Fuel Production Site
The 1st edition Ordnance Survey plan of 1856 shows what may have been 4 batteries of coke ovens. The 2nd edition Ordnance Survey plan shows a Lead Works on this site (HER ref. 2507), so the ovens must have been out of use by 1895.
