Westmoreland Street, Hartlepool
The street was demolished in 1970 along with nearby Northumberland Street.
Taken from Waldon Street looking towards Stockton Road, the Lion Social Club is on the right and between the shops is Westmoreland Street. The shop on the right is still there although is now an office, but all the other buildings are now demolished. In the background, Stranton Primary School which was opened in 1971 so therefore the photo date is more likely to be much later than 1965 stated.More detail »
The image is taken from Westmoreland Street looking across to the now demolished Westbourne Methodist Church. To the left of the large church is the church hall which was built alongside and is now used as both Westbourne Church and hall.
