Dent's Hole

  • Description

    "....Dent’s Hole was part of Byker and found to the south east of Newcastle, immediately east of St. Peter’s. It is shown on the Ordnance Survey map of 1859, but disappeared before the 1895 map, due to the building of the railway. On both maps there is a ferry across to Friars Goose, Felling. Dent’s Hole is mentioned in Charleton’s “Newcastle Town”. The following passage mentions an “old Mr Emmet” who was probably one of our ancestors. “…the whalers are seen no more at Dent’s Hole; but the salmon fishery is still carried on there. ...." "
