HER Info

George Stephenson worked at Water Row Pit from 1798 to 1801. There was a row of old cottages at Water Row along the river frontage - now only the Boathouse Inn survives (HER 8891). Water Row was cleared by Newburn Urban District Council as part of a slum clearance in 1931-9 {TWAS UD/Nb/40/35}.
