Tyne and Wear HER(13408): Hylton Castle, Chelmsford Road, military camp - Details
Hylton Castle, Chelmsford Road, military camp
Woodside Infants School at Chelmsford Road, Hylton Castle was a former military camp. It had at least three Nissen huts, two wooden huts for classrooms and a brick toilet block with a concrete roof, that may also have served as an air raid shelter. The buildings appear on OS maps of 1951. Was the site connected with RAF Usworth?
