Hebburn's Power Station , which was across the main Shields to Newcastle railway lines from the Pyrotenax Factory.I'm not sure why it closed apart from I know there was a massive explosion there.
Because of it closing the local unemployed people set about remodelling it into a Club that became well known in the area, aptly called 'The Powerhouse'. People from Jarrow, Hebburn, Bill Quay, Wardley,Pelaw came along, especially for the dances.
