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.

The cranes from the shipyard can be seen for miles around - Wallsend, suburb of Newcastle on the River Tyne, England  Sun and Shadows, building on the docks - Wallsend, suburb of Newcastle on the River Tyne, England  The 12 O'clock Clock -  - Wallsend, suburb of Newcastle on the River Tyne.  The clock no longer works - appropriate since it is next to the abandoned docks and ship yards   Resting on the Doorstep  - Wallsend, suburb of Newcastle on the River Tyne, England
