The ruins of Old Dockendale Hall were in a field on the east side of Blaydon Burn, but were destroyed when the Ottovale Coke Works (HER ref. 1651) were constructed. The hall formed part of the estate of George Silvertop and was probably really a farmhouse… in 1765, when in the possession of John Humble and Thomas Billy, it was offered for sale in October of that year. In 1810 the house was altered and made into tenements, occupied by keelmen in the employment of Mr. Dunn. The advent of the railways sounded the death knell to the keelmen's trade, so that by 1840 the hall was unoccupied.
