Streets of Hebburn ~ Railway Terrace …
Posted by email@example.com on June 28, 2018, 6:59 am
Built in or before 1901, on the north side of Wagonway Road (just after Lyon Street) and exactly opposite Hebburn Quay County Junior Mixed and Infant School. The west end of the terrace faced the Hebburn ‘C’ Pit. Railway Terrace was demolished between 1970-73.
In 1850, this was waste land, part of the Hebburn ‘C’ Pit, occupied by John Redhead, and leased from landowner Cuthbert Ellison. Named after:
The fact that it was surrounded by so many railway lines.
