There’s a lot of rational thought gone into these answers – brilliant!
I am not sure what the answer to this question is, though I agree with Laurence, John (Shearer) and Tom (Barker) that it is most likely Leslie’s bottom gate, due to all the thousands of men that passed through there each working day.
But the shipyard has been closed for many years, so it is now possible that at this point in time, St. Aloysius Church, which Eddy chose, might have outdone the shipyard in terms of people crossing over its threshold, though I don’t know.
Barrie’s and Joseph’s choice of ‘Bentinck’, Don’s choice of ‘Hedley Schools’ and FredB’s choice of ‘the old library’ are also good contenders.
John (Shearer’s) choice of Hebburn Station, if it still had the original gate or buildings, would have surely been the number one answer. The word threshold includes both a gate or door entrance.
P. S. The Pedestrian Tunnel is a great answer (we must be talking millions of pedestrians), though, alas, in the wrong location specified.
