Memories of ...

Fields, and lots of them!

The Fields around New Washington, 1898

New Washington & Usworth 1898.

Were you familiar with New Washington in the 1950s/60s?     If so, you'll remember scores of things that later filled these fields.     What and where?

( For example: Heworth Road and New Rows Chapel didn't exist in 1898 but their locations will soon be obvious when you find New Rows and 'Flat Tops' terraces. )
