This photo is Hebburn riverside, and at the far end of the field close to Prince Consort Rd it looks like Funfair Trailers. Someone recently mentioned the Fair had used that playing field. Can anyone date the photo ie decade?
Wow! Fantastic! That easily solves the decade... and more! We now know - thanks to Peter Cook - that the ship is the Thorseggen, and that the photograph was taken between her launch 16/09/1982 and her completion 07/1983.
Thank you for that Peter; you definitely know your ships.
Thats the boat yard behind the inductive. The field you are looking at was the old tip that was landscaped in the 70s. Could be the ark royal in the background and the old changing rooms in georges field that was changed into a youth play centre then a club house for the boat club then demolished.
