HER Description

NEHL - A historical piece from the Sunderland Daily Echo of 1934 reports on cock fighting held at Squire Stafford's house on Fulwell Lane in the 19th century. His house was apparently "where the babbies are", referring to statues of babies outside of his house. No further context or description of the cockpit is provided.

At this time there were very few dwellings on Fulwell Lane above the railway line, for which the northernmost property looks most probable.
