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.
With such an interesting and historic setting on the River Tyne, we’re often drawn to Smith’s Dock’s waterfront setting. The River Tyne is a busy commercial waterway, playing host to cruise liners, daily ferries to Europe and a range of fishing boats bringing their wares to sell at the local North Shields fish market; regular passing ships offer a constantly changing landscape for residents at Smith’s Dock to enjoy.
Our modular Town House and Fab House homes at Smith’s Dock have been awarded the Offsite Project of the Year accolade at the 2019 annual Building Awards.
Smith’s Dock enjoys an enviable location on the lively North Shields Fish Quay – home to a busy fishing port and growing number of award-winning restaurants and bars. With such a vibrant and busting atmosphere, the Little Pilates Company offers a welcome escape in which to enjoy the company of Pilates teacher and owner, Claire Barnaby.
Supporting an active lifestyle is a must for many people when choosing a new home but at Smith’s Dock, the surrounding area offers an impressive range of diverse fitness activities.
Right on the doorstep is Boar City Crossfit, North Shields’ only Crossfit box and home to 100’s of active members at the gym on nearby Lawson Street. We had a chat with Boar City co-owner and Director of Coaching, Tim Hook, to learn more about the local fitness community close to Smith’s Dock.
