Tyne and Wear HER(11560): Walbottle, Old Row - Details
Walbottle, Old Row
Old Row, the very first terraced housing to be built in Walbottle village, is shown on the tithe map of 1848. The houses had no back garden, but vegetables could be grown in the surrounding allotments. Confusingly the terrace is named New Row on the first edition Ordnance Survey map.
