Tyne and Wear HER(15728): East Rainton, Co-operative Store - Details
East Rainton, Co-operative Store
In 1925 the Moorsley Co-operative Society bought land on Durham Road at East Rainton. There was a miner's strike in 1926 so the building was not built until 1931, but trading began from 1927 in part of a rented house owned by Mr Jopling.
