Smith’s Dock has a proud history. Sat on the banks of the River Tyne, it was once a place where warships, cargo liners, tankers and fishing boats were built and repaired. It was part of the lifeblood of North Shields. But since 1987, the dockyard has been lying dormant and forgotten. But now there’s a new story to tell, a new chapter, a new generation. A new neighbourhood breathing life back into this proud dockyard again.
