NZ3065 : Former Hawthorn, Leslie dry dock, Hebburn

taken 19 years ago, near to Hebburn, South Tyneside, Great Britain

Former Hawthorn, Leslie dry dock, Hebburn
Former Hawthorn, Leslie dry dock, Hebburn
Fine building on the left and a church tower in the background add defining features. The grey shed in the background contained workshops and the Newcastle Museum's technology store. The contents are now at Beamish. Ten years after the event I feel able to admit that the gates to the compound could be just lifted off their hinges and replaced afterwards and nobody was the wiser.
Oh yes - the grey object filling the foreground is HMS Cavalier and I spent several hours in her machinery spaces (with full permission).
