Saturday's header at Bill Quay-Pelaw
Posted by Norman Dunn on May 22, 2021, 8:40:33
Todays header shows the area where Station Rd Bill Quay meets Shields Rd, with the old Boldon Co-op Stores on the corner and across the road is the Presbyterian Church and the Co-op works behind.
Cutting across on an angle and crossing Shields Rd is the coal lines that dropped trucks down to the staiths using a wire rope to control the speed. Then empties would be hauled back to be refilled.
