CHAPEL ROW: Hebburn Colliery. Existed in 1843. Demolished between 1921-38.
Chapel Row was the right vertical of a square of houses that made up ‘The Square’. Chapel row ran parallel with High Lane Row, and was at a right angle with Cross Row, which was replaced by the present Witton Road. Chapel Row stood where no.6 Lambton Road is, and ran up to the front of no.4, Witton Road.
Chapel Row consisted of twelve back to back houses, with twelve houses in the square. They contained a fair sitting room, and a good bedroom but they were very close and stuffy owing to the want of thorough ventilation. In 1903, they were condemned due to being unsanitary.
In 1843, the first Hebburn Primitive Methodist Chapel was built here, on the north end of the row - an old house on the west end of Cross Row was demolished for that purpose. The narrow entrance door was on the west side of the church and the pulpit on the north wall.
In 1875, when a new Methodist Chapel was opened on High Lane Row, the Chapel Row building was taken over by the owners (The Pit), and used as storage for pit gear. In 1923 the old building on Chapel Row was renovated, and later became the Salvation Army Hall.
When the Primitive Methodist Chapel on High Lane Row, closed in 1973, it amalgamated with the Central Methodist Church and St. Luke’s Methodist Church and became St Luke's Methodist Church, built 1974 on Burn Heads Road. The vacant Chapel on High Lane Road became a Kingdom Hall of Jehovah’s Witnesses.
Named after: The Colliery Chapel.
