The Ironworks

Hebburn Marina

Alongside the the River Tyne at Hebburn Marina we have a nice new “boardwalk” with an ornate iron fence fronting on to the riverside. There are quite a few decorative panels in the fencework created by our local schoolchildren. This one illustrates the river’s history including the invasion by the vikings, a crane depicting the nearby Hawthorn Leslie shipyard, and the outline of a factory, possibly Reyrolls Switchgear in Hebburn.

The coloured light reflections on the water were added with Photoshop.
