Re: Just for fun – Answer...
Way back in the 1300s Hebburn Estate belonged to the Wilby family. Over succesive years the mansion ie Hebburn Hall would have got larger and larger with sandstone from close by ie the little Quarry we call The Dene'.
Why would they want to transport heavy sandstone when Hebburn sits on it?
If you follow the route of the Roman Wall, you see places where the stone was quarried. That was how they did it.
