Cock Crow Well
In the photo below (Norman's Album) you can see the old dock and I have put a red dot roughly where I think the well used to be...near the river edge within the boundaries of Bede Metal Works but, Barrie might be able to do it more accurately with that map/Google Earth program he used in his post above. The huge A&P shed stands on that spot now.
The blue dot is roughly over the area of Jarrow Wood House (later Cock Crow). You can see the concrete jetty I mentioned, up in the extreme top right corner. It had Borfors anti aircraft guns set on it during WW2 and their steel plate screens were still there until the jetty was demolished.
The other photo was taken whilst on a recent cruise (May) down the river. The jetty was just to the left of the A&P shed where the small motor launch (white upper deck) is tied up.
