Well that about wraps up this bit of history. It still remains to be wondered why the western structure was ever named Jarrow Wood House in the first place when it was clearly within the bounds of Hebburn. Whoever renamed it Cock Crow when the original Cock Crow was demolished must have had the same thing in mind and decided to redress the balance....good for him and I think Cock Crow has a far better ring to it.
That 1862 map shows some great detail and suggests a formal, possibly even walled, garden stretching away to the west of the house. It must have been a beautiful place before the pits took hold, especially with that tree lined stream running down to the river. I wonder if anyone ever painted the scene down there, or photographed it. If so, did anything of it survive and just waiting to be rediscovered in some obscure book or collection?
