Tyne and Wear HER(8465): Blaydon Burn, Cowen Buildings - Details
Blaydon Burn, Cowen Buildings
A much altered but formerly a two-storied building, the function of this structure is unknown. It cannot be clearly identified on archive mapping before the 2nd edition OS of 1898, and was presumably associated with Cowen’s Low yard (103). Sandstone rubble walls remain with blocked windows and an opening to the north, the first floor has been truncated diagonally creating a cat-slide roof.
