Friars Goose Marina in Gateshead
Friars Goose Marina in Gateshead
Viewed from the north bank of the River Tyne. As can be seen, there is an old slipway here which is still used by the yacht owners. This was the site of a shipyard from wooden shipbuilding days and was owned by a succession of companies. Probably the most famous was T Micheson's ship repair yard from 1919 to 1955. Then James Burgess and Sons took over and built fishing vessels and tugs until they closed in 1964, to end a long history of shipbuilding on the site.
