Study Description 

Stone Yard was a small community of eight houses, close to the River Wear in the east end of Sunderland. It was demolished in 1932 to make way for a new quay development. I want to find out everything I can about the buildings and inhabitants of Stone Yard – When was it built? Who built it? What are the stories of the people who lived there? How was the land used before it was built? What happened to the residents when it was demolished? Any links to smuggling?


Roughly 1800-1930
