  1. This is certainly Thornaby place, the skips belonging to beacon waste materials. I worked there as a fitter during the mid eighties, before the company was sold to Cleanaway Waste, based at Bishop Middleham.


  2. Yes it certainly looks like Thornaby Place. David Tweddle, who was in my class at the Arthur Head school, lived in Thornaby Place in the late fifties early sixties


  3. My Dad,Ronnie Bennington was born in Thornaby Place in 1922. When I was a child there was a Boat Club there and he and his brother Tommy would take us up the river towards Yarm and stop at the quarry for a picnic.


  4. Looks like it. I believe that is Foster Brotherton’s timber yard in Boathouse Lane which is opposite Thornaby Place on the Stockton side of the river.
