Scotswood, Scotswood Tower
Little is known of this curious Victorian house, apparently built on to an ancient tower. It stood on the right hand side of Denton Road, going towards the Tyne, near the present Sports and Social Club, but was demolished in the early 1970s. A "Tower House" is shown in this position on the first edition Ordnance Survey map.
