Swalwell Streets


Old maps of Swalwell show the main concentrations of housing to be around the Waterside, along Hexham Road and on the lower part of Whickham Bank below what is now Clavering Road and East to Quality Row / Jubilee Terrace. All of old Swalwell has now long gone, and over the years terraced houses were built at the lower end of Swalwell, followed by the existing council estates South of Clavering Road in the 1930s. Since then, new houses have been built almost every decade - at the Greenfields (Alexandra Drive, Beverley Drive etc) in the 50s and 60s and subsequent to this new small estates have popped up almost every decade from Byron Court at the top of Ruskin Road to the  developments at the bottom of Whickham Bank (Broadmeadows Close) and Ruskin Road (Rosebud Close), and on the old football and cricket pitches - The Covers and the (aptly named) 'Pavillion'. Housing has also been built on the site of the old Garden House service station next to the cemetery.

Most of these developments are shown under.
