The Shipwrights, North Hylton


The Shipwrights is a pub and resturant located on Ferryboat Lane in North Hylton, by the River Wear. The building dates from the 18th century; and a Grade II listed. "....In former days The Shipwrights was a coaching house on the way to Durham via the river road, where men were press ganged into the Navy. At low tide you can still see the slipway where they built sailing ships & launched them opposite on the south side of the river. At one time there were 14 pubs from here to the Queen Alexandra Bridge."(Shipwrights Website).
