GUEST,Peter Byker Hill: background info anyone? (145* d) RE: Byker Hill: background info anyone? 12 May 19


AS Walker had staithes for loading coal onto keel boats "shore" is most likely in my view. Walker Colliery was very close to the river. Old maps show a wagonway from the Byker Hill area to the Tyne at Walker.

Until seeing Walker Colliery on the map just now I had always taken "Walker Shore" simply to be where the coal was delivered from the colliery's own wagons to the boats.

(I haven't trawled through the whole thread either)
