Tyne and Wear HER(12063): Bensham, Bewick Road, terraces - Details
Bensham, Bewick Road, terraces
Between Alexandra Road and Coatsworth Road are two terraces facing each other across Bewick Road. The northern terrace was built in the 1860s and the southern terrace around 1885-90. Both terraces are two-storey with ground floor bay windows. The southern terrace is closer to the road and shows a much greater use and elaboration of stone in its bays, cornices, window surrounds, doorcases and string courses.
