HER Description

Moor Court flats were built in 1938 to Art Deco designs by Clarance Soloman of Jesmond. The flats had an adjoining block of twelve garages ('motor houses') with a squash court above. Squash derived from the game of rackets. It became popular in the 1930s when courts were commonly built at hotels. Gosforth Squash Club was founded in 1953.
