Re: Jarrow riverside what’s there
Hi Allan, Upriver from the Ferry Landing and Pedestrian Tunnel in our time was Lennigs Chemicals which was taken over by Rhom & Haas.In the older days it was Jarrow Palmers and Steelworks. Iron ore came in at the Hebburn end and steel ships at the other end was Palmer's boast. Our Slag Heap was where the Palmers Blast Furnaces slag came from.
Currently the Chemical Works are closed and land up for Sale. Here is an old aerial view from long before the Pedestrian tunnel.
