Tyne & Wear

Hebburn and Jarrow Local History Society meet weekly, sharing their knowledge and enthusiasm for history over tea, coffee and biscuits.

In 1944, Landing Craft Tank 7074 was built and launched at Hawthorn Leslie in Hebburn on the banks of the River Tyne.

The group is proud of its local ship building heritage and members visited the Discovery Centre in Newcastle to have a look at the archives.
