Tyne and Wear HER(4218): Walker, Shipbuilding Yard - Details
Walker, Shipbuilding Yard
Marine Construction Site
The 1st edition Ordnance Survey map of the area shows buildings along the southern and western boundaries of the yard. A slip lies towards the north of the yard with a crane alongside. By the time of the 2nd edition Ordnance Survey the yard has been subsumed within the Neptune Yard. The site now lies within the current Swan Hunter Yard, and it would seem unlikely that early features will have survived.
