Tyne and Wear HER(8438): Blaydon Burn, Otto Terrace - Details
Blaydon Burn, Otto Terrace
This was a row of seven terraced houses for workers, facing the Ottovale works with gardens behind. The terrace was supplied with water from a reservoir in the valley below, which was pumped electrically to a 127,000 gallon cast-iron storage tank beside the works. The terrace appears in a photograph of c.1930 (GPL) but today there are no visible remains.
