Wallsend - Located at the East End of Hadrian's Wall
Wallsend is a town on the north bank of the River Tyne in North Tyneside, Tyne and Wear, England. Wallsend literally means the ";end of the wall";, for it is situated at the eastern end of Hadrian's Wall, built by the Roman Emperor Hadrian in the 2nd Century at the northern point of the Roman occupation. Formerly noted for its ship building, I visited it on the day the last ship (still under construction) was towed away and the Swan's Shipyard was deactivated. With the close of the ship yard, its empty docks and its burned out buildings along the docks, it is a city of yesterday.
