Davy's Fish & Chip Shop, Winlaton Mill


Davy's Fish and Chip Shop in Winlaton Mill closed in 2007 but was recreated in Beamish Museum were it reopened on 14th July 2011. Davy's Fried Fish bar at Beamish incorporates the three-pan coal-fired range and other fixtures from Winlaton Mill, catering for visitors both as an eatery and an exhibit showing the development of fish and chip shops from the late Victorian era onwards.[1] The traditional family-run fish and chip shop in Winlaton Mill was built in 1937. From the 1950's it was run by Robert and Isabella Davy and family. The fish used in the shop were bought from North Shields Fish Quay and the family also ran a van around the area selling fresh fish. The Winlaton Mill shop had the last working coal-fired range in a fish shop on Tyneside when it closed in 2007 after the death of Isabella Davy. The range, now in Beamish, was originally made in 1934 for a chip shop in High Spen and then moved to Winlaton Mill in 1961.[2] Beef dripping was always used for frying.

"The fish and chips we know and love today developed during the Victorian era. It is believed that a man called Dyson from Oldham was the first to link fried fish to fried potatoes. He commissioned a range specifically for the frying of fish and chips from Harry Nutall, who became one of the major range manufacturers. By 1914 there were 452 recorded Fish and Chip Shops spread across the North East." (Beamish Museum)
