Above map showing the location of the Scotswood Yard is dated 1894 and is copyright of Ordnance Survey

The shipyard covered about 8 acres immediately due east of the Scotswood Bridge in the area covered by the former Vickers Tank Factory. In 1885 the partners in the firm were seen as CJ Bowstead of Riding Mill and John McLeod Campbell of Scotswood House. The elusive other partner Mackintosh was said to be a former Palmers draughtsman or designer. On the closure of the firm JM Campbell went to Robert Stephenson & Co as Yard Manager at Hebburn and the site was then used by the Scotswood Shipbuilding Company.
