Westwood Street, Sunderland
Westwood Street, Sunderland
Westwood Street in Sunderland's suburbs.

The street is a path flanked on either side by a terrace of Sunderland cottages. Although these were built as single-storey dwellings, many have had their loft space converted into additional living space.
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".
