This shows what was Furness Shipyard at Haverton Hill. It shows the Building Slips and Fitting Out basin. Many fine ships were built here but it also where the "Furness Bridge" six were built. (Including the ill fated "Liverpool Bridge" which became "Derbyshire").

It was quite impressive to see a 170,000 ton ship launched into a relatively small river.

Greetings,

I am sat writing this from my study (study sounds so posh) about 25 miles upriver from this shot and overlooking the Tees from the Yorkshire side, could mortal man ask for more, apart from say a pint or a couple of pints or even a couple more pints.

Some of S.N. Members may well have been Crew on vessels carrying Ore to the opposite bank just below the Newport Bridge (upper right) where there was a large Steelworks, some of the vessels if I remember correctly were the old 3 Island Tramps mainly Greek (ex British owned) and seeing out their last days before heading for the Breakers.
