Tyne and Wear HER(12526): Whitburn, North Guards, estate buildings - Details
Whitburn, North Guards, estate buildings
A number of former estate buildings associated with the wealthy houses which break through the tall limestone walls on the south side of North Guards. Most are now converted for residential use. The Limes former coach house has a good Welsh slate roof but inappropriate modern windows, Velux-style rooflights, painted stonework and modern fascias. A former brick carriage arch to Whitburn House has been sympathetically infilled. The former estate cottages have been modernised with render, Tudor boards, mock shutters and modern windows, harming their historic character.
