Adjoining both Docks there is a considerable area of land available for the storage of Timber, Props, Deals, Battens and Boards, Telegraph Poles, &c., and for the establishment of Timber Yards, Saw Mills, Creosoting, and other Industrial Works, &c., in connection with the Shipping and Trade of the Port.

Applications from Merchants, Capitalists, Manufacturers, and others, to rent portions of this land, addressed to the undersigned, will receive the favourable consideration of the Commissioners.

The Commissioners' TIMBER PONDS at Jarrow Slake, opposite Northumberland Dock, which contain an area of 89 acres, and have direct access from the river, are let on short tenancies. Timber may also be stored in the Ponds at a weekly rental.

The TYNE, as the Principal Coal Port in the Kingdom, affords superior advantages to vessels requiring Outward Freights.

Steamers "calling" in the Tyne to “Bunker” at the Commissioners' Docks and Staiths, can purchase the best Steam Coal on the most favourable terms, and obtain the benefit of modified Dues.

The exports of Coal and Coke from the Port, exceed 14 million tons per annum.

Ballast is quickly discharged from and/or loaded into Vessels by the Commissioners' S.S. Ballast Hopper Barges.

Excellent facilities exist in the Port for discharging and loading Vessels, and for warehousing all descriptions of General Merchandise, Grain, &c., Timber, " under cover" and in the "open.”

Liberal reductions in dues are made on vessels discharging and/or loading partial cargoes in the port.

Full information as to Rates and Charges may be obtained on application to the Commissioners' Traffic Manager, Northumberland Dock, Percy Main, or to

Sunderland, at the mouth of the River Wear, is the chief Seaport of the County of Durham. It is one of the greatest Coal Ports of the Kingdom, the annual shipments reaching upwards of 5,000,000 tons.

The River Wear Commissioners are the Conservators of the Port, which includes the River Wear 10 Biddick Ford, a distance of nine miles from the mouth, and they are also the owners of the South Docks, which extend from The Harbour entrance southward for a length of one mile.

Extensive Protecting Piers are now being constructed, which will forın in all weathers and at all times of the tide a Harbour of Refuge for the largest class of vessels. The South Docks, comprising the Hudson Dock, North and South, and Hendon Dock, are furnished with the latest appliances for quick loading and discharge of vessels. The Warehouses, Timber Yards, &c., on the Dock Estate are directly connected with the North-Eastern Railway.
