The following information is from the book, The Streets of Hebburn - if you can help update or correct it, please let me know, thank you:
BRANCEPETH ROAD: Hebburn Colliery. Meets with Witton Road on the north, crosses Lambton
Road, and then meets with Auckland Road on the south.
It was originally named Witton Road, and became Brancepeth Road, between 1938-41.

Named after: Village and civil parish in County Durham, in England.
