Description

This location was one of the 3 or 4 shipyards that were operated at Walker in the 1850s.

This yard features at least 2 slips with a number of ancillary buildings as shown on the 1864 Ordnance Survey. There are a number of candidates who may have owned this yard, namely Thomas Seymour, Joseph Middleton or Hepple & Landells.

The yard was consumed by the Neptune Yard.
