A railway tunnel, built in the s, left the west and south sides of the square largely unfinished, until a s library building was constructed, somewhat out of keeping with the rest of the architecture. Because of the difficulty of navigating ships into the mouth of the river past the dangerous Black Midden rocks, buildings were erected in the 16th century with permanent lights burning to be used as a guide by the mariners.

High and Low lights are pictured on a map of the river Tyne: a pair of square castellated towers. Both lights were rebuilt in , and these buildings still stand today albeit the Old Low Light was remodelled in to serve as an almshouse.

Today, the Old High Beacon, as well as the High and Low Lights, are private residences; they remain prominent landmarks. In , a market place was opened on New Quay. In , work began on constructing a fish quay to provide shelter for the docked fishing boats. This quay is still in use today. Clifford's Fort , located on the Fish Quay , was built in the 17th century as a coastal defence against the Dutch. The site of the fort was used to build new fish processing facilities and very little now remains of the original fort.

Part of the foundations of the 18th century Master Gunner's House demolished in were found below the concrete floor of a fish processing unit. Elsewhere on the site, part of the stone edging of Cable Tanks belonging to the Submarine Mining Depot established at the fort in were uncovered.

One of North Shields' oldest landmarks is the "Wooden Dolly" statue. In , the female figurehead of a collier brig was placed at the entrance to Custom House Quay, on Liddell Street, and stood there until , when it was vandalised. A second figurehead was placed on the same spot.

The "Wooden Dolly", as the figurehead was known, was used by seafarers as a source of good-luck charms, by cutting pieces of wood from her to be taken with them on voyages. This remained until when it was replaced with Wooden Dolly No.

A fifth Wooden Dolly, also a fishwife, was placed in Northumberland Square in and was removed for restoration in December Once restoration has been completed it will be placed in the Library and a replacement figure installed in the square. In , the town's businesses were listed as a marine engine, chain cable and anchor manufacturer, shipbuilding yards, roperies, salt-works, and an earthenware and stained glass manufacturer.

Fishing was also a major employer. Shipyards have been in existence in North Shields since near its founding. The smaller yards built the Northumbrian coble , a small inshore fishing vessel with a lug sail , well known in the North East. Larger yards built wooden sailing collier brigs , used to transport local coal to London.

These yards produced iron vessels for various uses, including fishing and the coal trade. In later years the North Shields yards were used for ship repair work, with Smith's dock surviving until the s.

Esso formerly had an oil terminal on the banks of the Tyne, off Howdon Road. In April , a bomb planted by the IRA exploded tearing a 3-foot square hole in one of the tanks. A second device, which did not detonate, was later found nearby. Six hundred gallons of crude oil leaked from the tank, but was caught in a channel designed to prevent leakages. In , seating inspired by Plasticine, the inventor of which was born in North Shields, was installed on Bedford Street in the town centre.

The seats proved unpopular as their shape prevented rainwater draining off, so they were replaced by more traditional metal benches and moved to the Royal Quays Marina in Within a year larger premises were needed. Between and , a community festival was organised on the fish quay, during which the fleet of fishing boats would be blessed and various local talents would entertain the crowds.

At its peak, the festival attracted , visitors. A smaller-scale family festival, in order to save costs, was held annually between and , before it too was scrapped as a money-saving measure.

A large council estate, Meadow Well alternatively spelt Meadowell or Meadowwell on local signs to the west of the town, was constructed in the s to house residents displaced by the clearance of the Dockwray Square and Low Town slum areas.

Its present name is derived from a well situated in a meadow upon which the estate was built. On Monday, 9 September , Meadow Well was featured heavily in the news across the UK as riots broke out, [36] which continued for three days. Many properties were damaged, [37] cars burned out and the local community centre burned down. As a result of the riots, the local housing was gradually improved by the council over the next three years through demolition and rebuilding, as well as renovation.
