Home Swans logo WALLSEND

Swan Hunter & Wigham Richardson was the biggest working yard on the river for some years. At one period all the yards from Wallsend to Walker belonged to 'Swan's'. Finally the Wallsend Yard was all that was left. It closed once in 1993, and finally in 2007. The Yard was sold to North Tyneside Council in 2009 and now is an 'enterprise zone'
