Tyne and Wear HER(12766): Cleadon, Front Street, 38, buildings to the rear - Details
Cleadon, Front Street, 38, buildings to the rear
Buildings can be identified to the rear of 38 Front Street, where their age, pitch of roof and raised gables suggests that they were at one time thatched. Internal investigation would confirm whether this is the case. The pitch coated ropes that bound the thatch usually leave marks on the roof timbers.
