Bishopwearmouth, Green Terrace
An attractive red brick group of late Victorian buildings in a peculiar neo-classical style with terracotta doorcases. Some of the fine properties have been converted into a cafĂ© bar. Their interiors have been gutted, insensitive signs erected and over-bearing rear extensions added, Within the terrace is a late 18th century stuccoed villa with fine bowed windows. This is now a wine bar as was restored in 1992.
