Cuthbert Ellison (1783-1860), MP for Gateshead and a great benefactor to the town was commemorated in this street. These houses built in 1840 were built to provide good class houses of three stories and with half basements. However, they eventually became tenemented. The houses were demolished in the 1950’s.


3 and 5 Melbourne Street, Gateshead
Date:  1956
Named after Lord Melbourne (1779-1848) Queen Victoria’s first prime minister. Melbourne St and Victoria Street were built at the same time as Grosvenor Street . They formed part of the Barn Close estate (Burying Close) built by William Falkous on
land formerly part of the Bensham estates between 1838-1840. Described as ‘neat & pleasantly situated’ when built,
the estate rapidly deteriorated and the houses became tenemented. The first cholera death of 1853 occurred in Victoria Street.

This photograph was taken during a survey of Gateshead housing taken in the 1930s. Under the Housing Act of 1930, the Council was given much greater legal power to deal with slum housing. The worst areas were in central Gateshead. The Housing Act meant that whole areas of housing could be demolished and between 1932 and 1935 and many the streets in central Gateshead were acquired by compulsory purchase order and demolished. (Manders, 1973)
Garden Street was situated next to Oakwellgate, off Gateshead High Street. The signal gantry belonging to the Brandling Junction railway, which ran just behind Garden Street can just be seen behind the rooftops. Garden Street was demolished during the clearances of 1937.
