The end of a shipyard

Smith’s Dock at North Shields was for many years the biggest ship repair yard on The Tyne. It closed in 1990. In 2006 planning permission was given for houses to be built on the site, but after several false starts, that is yet to happen.  Below are some ‘before and after’ photos.
