I don't know Jarrow as well as my co-author... I looked for it in the book, 'Streets of Jarrow' and found the following:
SPRINGWELL AVENUE: 6 residential homes, No.1-6. 2 built in 1955.
These houses were built for the police behind the old Jarrow Police Station (now Clervaux Exchange); they were sold off by Northumbria Police in the 1980s.
Named after: Springwell Road that runs past it.
