Tyne and Wear HER(4905): Elswick, Rope Walk - Details
Elswick, Rope Walk
Rope Manufacturing Site
An open rope walk is shown on the 1st edition Ordnance Survey map of 1859, but not on the 2nd edition 1894 map, when it had been built over by a school and a number of other unidentified buildings, probably industrial in nature. It is not shown on an 1849 map of the area, however, and is unlikely to have consisted of any substantial structures.
