Working from home or self-isolating, for the foreseeable future we are all going to be spending a great deal more time indoors. The events that have changed the face of the world in previous weeks have also created a temporary alteration in lifestyle and behaviour that has increased our need for social distancing and limiting unnecessary contact wherever possible.
There is no question that Smith’s Dock is a transformative development. The collection of contemporary properties has breathed new life into the former Smith’s Dock shipyard and revitalised the Western end of the North Shields Fish Quay in the process.
As the nation goes on lockdown to help in the fight against Covid-19 people are looking for different ways to keep themselves entertained at home. With bars, pubs and restaurants closed, residents of Smith’s Dock on the North Shields Fish Quay are inspiring others with their unique approach to keeping busy by creating a silent light disco to reach out beyond their four walls.
Aerial footage highlighting the dramatic transformation of the former Smith’s Dock shipyard in North Shields has been released to mark the completion of the first phase of the landmark residential scheme.
