Documentary Evidence


A timber building yard lay on the coast to the east of South Dock (HER ref. 2874) and launched vessels into the South Entrance. The 1st edition Ordnance Survey map shows five small structures, including a smithy, within the yard. For a period in the 1860s the yard was owned and worked by a John Haswell. In the 1870s, the area of the yard would seem to have been divided between Bartram’s and Sunderland Shipbuilding Co. Ltd.
