The White Lead, Blackett Street, Hebburn

  • Description

    "The White Lead is an English Gastro Restaurant, bar & micro-brewery which opened on 4th October 2013. New life for the former Dougies Tavern [[3184188]] ‘The White Lead’ comes from original industrial heritage; though originally it was a Victorian pub called The Royal Hotel, it was affectionately known by people in Jarrow and Hebburn from the late 1800s onwards as The White Lead, as many of the properties in the area were covered with white powder from the local lead manufacturing plant. The Tyne Lead Works was on the other side of the road; land still fenced off and unused." Photo by Andrew Curtis, 2015.
