Abbot & Co, Gateshead

John Abbot & Co grew in the 1820s and 1830s until in 1841, 640 men and boys were employed in factories to the east of Gateshead's Oakwellgate known as Park Works. The output diversified considerably until they produced everything from tin-tacks to railway engines, but the decline was as fast as the growth and the firm went into liquidation in 1909.
