1916 Felling

Left click to see map bigger

Rowlandson Terrace (above) is still alive and well but gone are Havelock Street, Ridley Street, Booth Street, Cross Street, Simpson Street, Stainton Street, Christies Lane, Norman Street, Buller Street, White Street, Brown Place, Pattinson Street and Pattinson Terrace

This one shows Heworth Village as it can be seen in old photos, before the by-pass took the whole northern end of the village away and before the Metro station took the school away. Note, also this map mentions the cup and coins found in Heworth Churchyard, which turned out to be an elaborate hoax.
Look at these magnificent pictures of Heworth village lost because of the bypass and the Metro line, the fast transport links to Sunderland..hands up, who was in favour of a fast way to get to Sunderland? I'm joking!
