Description

A small boat building yard can be seen on the 1890s maps. It was built after 1855 as the site was taken up by the Pan Ash Smithworks at the Stanhope and Tyne drops. An advertisement in an 1887 edition of the Chronicle details a sale of a blacksmiths plant here, so may have been converted after this date.

It featured two cranes without any slips or docks, meaning it was likely a conversion.
