Lawe Road, South Shields

Lawe Road, South Shields

Typical Victorian era four floored properties in Lawe Road, South Shields with the attic rooms highlight by bright sunshine. They consist mainly of a basement, ground floor and first floor, then attics converted into additional bedroom. Many of these larger town properties have been converted into tguesthouse because of their close proximity to the parks and beaches.

Camera details: Pentax K100D, 450mm lens, 1/1000 second, f8, iso 200

  1. Loved the picture of Lawe Road. My great-grandparents lived on this street 1870-1890. Do you think any of these buildings were there at the time? Coming to Newcastle/South Shields in February to see what I can find. Your pictures really gave me a feel for the town.

    • I suspect that most of them were built around that time Margaret.
