Fishermen in the North East used to turn their old wooden boats (called cobles) upside down to make shelters.
They used wooden salmon cobles to fish for salmon.
The harbor was once busy with small cobles working stake nets for salmon off the River Tyne.
Beside the small buildings are four salmon cobles, three of which are upside down.
From the start of the last century right into the new Millenium, sailing cobles have brought interest to visitors to the harbor.
