Who Lived In My House?

We have completed a commission to research two Heaton house histories. The houses are neighbouring on Warwick Street. We investigated the history of these houses and presented our House History packs for a birthday gift. Our client expressed the intention that the packs would stay with the properties upon selling, or upon new residents moving in.

Life In A Colliery House In Coxlodge

I was born in the unheated bedroom of a one up, one down colliery house in a snowstorm. The midwife couldn’t get there so my Grandma delivered me. I spent much of my early childhood in that house as my mother worked and I loved it. It was a couple of doors down from the Trap, the social heart of Coxlodge.

This post was prompted by the second TV series of A House Through Time in which David Olusoga traces the history of no 5 Ravensworth Terrace in Newcastle NE1. If you enjoyed the series and are interested in House Histories you may be able to pick up some research tips from our post How Do I Research The History Of My House?
