Jetty, Hebburn Riverside

  • Description

    "The jetty was officially opened in 2004. The riverside rail is decorated with cut-steel panels designed by local school children [[1967791]] Small boats are moored in a long line along the Hebburn bank of the River Tyne. On the far bank, ship-building has been replaced by ship-breaking in the sad remains of Swan Hunter's famous yard, the iconic cranes now gone. Compare with [[356380]]. A hulk registered in Kingstown is in process of being broken up by the Dutch ship-breakers, Ecodock UK Ltd [[1974314]] Almost central, is the distinctive viewing platform of the museum at Segedunum [[1052516]]" Photo by Andrew Curtis, 2010.
