Washington Chemical Works


Chemical Works, early 1970s.

 

WASHINGTON CHEMICAL WORKS / NEWALL'S INSULATION COMPANY / CAPE INSULATION

( Approximate Date: early 1970s. )

1. The Leamside Line and the Tyne Dock to Consett Railway passed the Chemical Works in the bottom-left corner.

2. Pattinson Town has been demolished so this picture was taken after 1964.

3. That's Northumbrian Water's Sewage Treatment Works, top-right - on the far side of the 'new' Pattinson Road.

4. Note the two roundabouts under construction on Pattinson Road, the right-hand roundabout forming a junction with Barmston Road.

5. Teal Farm Estate is situated in the upper-centre of this image - left of (and between) the two roundabouts, and above Barmston Road.

Many thanks to Peter Vasey for supplying this excellent image.

The Leamside Line and Tyne Dock / Consett Railway pass under the long footbridge before parting just beyond Washington Station.
