Tyne and Wear HER(11279): Walkerville, Appletree Gardens, No. 10, culvert - Details
Walkerville, Appletree Gardens, No. 10, culvert
Water Supply and Drainage
Culvert (or similar) formed of sandstone blocks and slabs found in the back garden of No. 10 in 2006 when the house owner was excavating a pond. The tunnel measuring 2 feet wide by 2 feet high and the top of the structure was around 4 feet below ground level. Probably industrial related as the site lies only 44m south of Henry Pit (HER 4181). The feature was covered over before it could be recorded.
