The terrace near the bridge did not have windows in the roof facing the main road, as the following pic shows - though, they might have had windows in the roof at the back.
Also, the Streets of Hebburn book shows:
Low Lane Row (East): Low Lane Row was sometimes known as Furnace Row.
Built before 1862. Gone by 1942. Row of 34 properties which started opposite to where the Kingdom Hall is today and ran down to Wagonway Road. They had a kitchen scullery, an ill-ventilated and uninhabitable low attic bedroom, defective roofs and also damp walls due to bad drainage and floors being below ground level. The row was condemned due to being unsanitary.
Norman, my thought is, that if they had an attic bedroom, it is likely that they had a window in the roof to allow daylight to flood in.
