Then there was the sledging, we were always there if snow. Sledges modified as and when. Snow built up to make a better run.
I remember one summer one of the lads fires got out of control and the fire brigade came.
I remember the vents on the top. If I remember they were flared with a say 6 to 8 inch circular grill like a tea pot shape. They got knocked off.
We use to climb up onto the small building on the top which must have been a ? Pump house ?
I only once went inside the Victoria Road entrance a lot of water. Did a lad died in there ?
Never heard it called the Waterworks. Why was it there ? A sort of header tank for Hebburn?
