My grandmother was living in this Newcastle street on the 1891 census and I've often been down there to take photos. The area, although surrounded by challenging streets, is now the Summerhill conservation area. The conservation area character statement can be seen online at https://www.newcastle.gov.uk/sites/default/files/wwwfileroot/legacy/regen/plantrans/conservation/Summerhill.pdf                         photos too!

A few years ago I chatted to a lady who lived in a nearby house, she says as far as she knew the houses were still residential without the glut of lawyers and architects offices that these areas seem to attract. So we shall see whether that has now changed.

Not sure if anyone has already flagged this up, but 'A House Through Time' is on BBC2 at 9pm on Monday 8 April. If you remember the last series followed the history of a house in Liverpool. This series will be following a house in Newcastle
I really enjoyed the last series so hopefully this will be as good

Thanks Gadget. I thought someone would have mentioned it. I must have somehow missed the thread

Interesting but I see it's another large posh house that has been chosen for study. Hardly representative of the type of housing most peoples ancestors would have lived in.
A BBC 'presenter, writer and historian' would probably live in a house like this now though ;D
