Shipbuilder: Coulson, Cooke & Co, St Peters (1872 - 1873)

In 1871 Charles Mitchell was looking for additional capacity so he acquired a small site at St Peter's (further up-river towards Newcastle from his existing shipyard) where two of his associates began building ships under the style of Coulson, Cooke & Company. In 1873 this firm moved to a larger and more suitable site, some 6.5 acres in area, at the river-front of Wallsend and bordering the shipyard of Shlesinger, Davis & Company which had been opened in Wallsend Parish in 1863.
