Kitchener Street, Sunderland
Kitchener Street, Sunderland
Kitchener Street, in the High Barnes area of Sunderland. The street is flanked by "Sunderland cottages" - these were built as terraces of single-storey homes for skilled workers. Some have had their lofts converted into extra bedrooms.
Sunderland cottages
Sunderland expanded rapidly during the Victorian era, as it became a centre for coal-mining and shipbuilding. To provide housing for workers, streets of terraced bungalows were built and then sold to skilled workers who could afford to buy them. This was a different approach to many other towns and cities, hence this type of housing is called "Sunderland cottages".
