This is the opening into Grange estate from Station Ave North A Lo is now on the left a couple of doors up. The flats were built on the right which, have since been pulled down. The police houses were built on the left.
I think this is looking at Avenue Vivian (facing) and the (white) half built house is Ravensworth Ave (Tipladies house – related to the Slack’s). The rubbish on the right is in the front gardens of the(to be built) old peoples terraced bungalows.
Is that Penshaw Monument on the hill in the distance? I think so.
I think the white un finished house is Acacia Ave which bends around and goes up to Mr Cummings shop. Ravensworth Ave would have been built to the left of the white house (not built yet) Yes it is Penshaw monument in the distance
Shirley, you are right. The first unfinished house is in Acacia Avenue. The Tipladys lived there initially and over the road from them, just in view in Avenue Vivian, the first family were the Galleys. Mr Cummins made great bakery products, particularly his white bread and buns.
