It seems to me that there is a lot more to the place where Jarrow Wood House (let's call it JWH) stood, than meets the eye. From my earliest interest in that area I was always convinced that there were two 'large' houses...the one mentioned above and a slightly smaller one just to the east...Cock Crow (let's call it CC). I never spotted any map evidence for a Cock Crow Well.
I have been aware for long enough that JWH survived up to some period after 1936 but was gone by the end of WW2. There very little left of CC at the earlier date but the thing that intrigues me the most is that neither site was actually overbuilt during development of Palmers Hebburn and, it would seem that Agincourt has not encroached either. I would place those buildings at about the green triangular area just to the NE of the trees that surround the estate and.......just ripe for an archaeological dig. I have the qualifications to take part in such a dig but haven't had much practice since I left Manchester University in 1982 because I followed the path of military history/museums. Nevertheless, I wouldn't mind dragging our caravan up there for a few weeks to put a spade in the ground.
Where is that Wilkie man? Didn't he already dig up half of Wagonway just to find the remains of that footbridge? Sadly, we don't hear much from Brian these days, or his big brother.
