Bridge Dockyard, Sunderland. - Robert Thompson opened his North Sands yard in 1846. His son, Robert, opened a yard at Southwick in 1854, while another son, Joseph Lowes, took over the yard at North Sands in 1860 and changed the company name to J. L. Thompson. Robert Thompson Jnr’s yard closed in 1933. J L Thompson’s yard was closed in 1979, although the fitting out quay was used by Doxford’s and Laing’s. St Peter’s Campus of Sunderland University now stands on the site.
