Tyne and Wear HER(8527): Monkton, Monkton Lane, Albany Terrace, Nos. 1 to 3 - Details
Monkton, Monkton Lane, Albany Terrace, Nos. 1 to 3
Late Victorian or Edwardian terrace of three red brick two storey houses with slate pitched roofs. No. 3 is shallower than the others to fit the site and so is double-fronted to compensate. The short terrace is reminiscent of late 19th century workers' terraces in other villages across the Durham coalfield. Windows and doors are a miss-match of timber and uPVC. Some stone detailing is painted, some stone mullions have been removed, railings and gates have been replaced and one roof is modern man-made slate. But all shaped brick chimneys are in place.
