Moving to Kenton 1948

Remembering Kenton in 1948. A guest post for Discovering Heritage. “School was also an adventure. I went to Edgefield Junior School with my brother and sister. We walked to school across Kenton Lane and went down the “ash path” which ran from Kenton Lane, beside Westwood Avenue towards Fawdon.”

Jesmond Dene House

Jesmond Dene House

Jesmond Dene House. We consider ourselves very lucky to have this beautiful old house on our doorstep! Jesmond Dene House has a well-documented history. Today it has become a hotel. Although I have never stayed overnight, I have enjoyed its ambience by merely popping in for coffee or booking an evening meal in its excellent restaurant.

Heaton House Histories

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.
