South Shields, Ferry Landing


The new landing for the Shields Ferry in South Shields was built by Harbour & General at the Pallion Yard in Sunderland. The landing is made of watertight concrete and was transported to its location by sea as a floating vessel; the workshop buildings and waiting room were built on top later. The landing was officially opened in July 1999 and named Maisie’s Landing after Maisie Stewart, who was Lord Mayor of South Shields at that time.[1]
