Tyne and Wear HER(11115): Bishopwearmouth, Church Lane - Details
Bishopwearmouth, Church Lane
Two-storey cottages and shops with a simple and uniform appearance. A charming and quaint area due to the absence of vehicular traffic, the narrowness of the lane and the resultant intimate enclosure of space.
