Customers (Not Exhaustive):
A small ship repair yard was located on Spring Lane, connected to the graving dock formerly owned by Forsythe's. The dock was shown on lease in an excerpt from the Shields Daily News of September 1880, so it likely dates some time after this.
Alongside the graving dock, the yard featured a travelling crane alongside a number of stationary units and was adjacent to a number of breweries. The yard is still extant by the 1910s.
The site has been redeveloped for housing.
