Tyne and Wear HER(4934): Lemington, Oliver's Shipyard - Details
Lemington, Oliver's Shipyard
Marine Construction Site
The position of a boatyard known as Olivers Shipyard was once marked by a fair sized jetty on the riverside. The paddle boat "Jabez Bunting" named after the Methodist minister, was built here for Joblings of Bell’s Close. This shipyard was in addition to that on the site of the present Stella North Power Station where 2 vessels of about 90 tons were built in the 1860s - the "Lemington Antelope" and the "Harry Kells".
