queens road

Recommended Posts

I'm wondering if anyone knows of any history in queens road. I moved in a few years ago and have wondered about the history of queens road before it was actually called queens road. ive looked all over online and haven't found anything to help with my questions. All I've found were a couple of old pictures of football groups which haven't really been helpful. I would just like to know the history of queens road before it was a council estate in 1980.

@r21ewwq - I don't know the year the estate was built but there is some info in the book(s) that Evan Martin had published. 

A map from 1920-21, published in 1924, does not show the estate, just The Palace theatre. 


The first map, I can find, that shows the estate is from 1938 - published in 1947. 


The estate was built on The Palace Fields, next to The Palace Theater.

The First photo of the Kinks Road houses is from the 1930’s in an Evan Martin book.

      All they want to do is cradle their newborn baby in their arms.
      But Bedlington parents Carly Walker and Ryan Murphy have been forced to watch from the sidelines as their daughter fights for her life.
      Little Ayda Faith Murphy was born prematurely on March 31, weighing just 4lbs, at Newcastle's Royal Victoria Infirmary.
      Rushed for her first operation straight after birth and another at just four days old, she's battling terrifying odds after being diagnosed with a series of incredibly rare birth defects.
      An almost unique variant of gastroschisis, a defect of the abdominal wall, has left her intestines pushing up into her chest - a condition doctors estimate is suffered by no more than 10 babies worldwide.
      Meanwhile, her heart appears to have flipped over and lies on the wrong side of her chest, while she's receiving oxygen from a machine due to her underdeveloped lungs.
