Battle Hill, Wallsend


Battle Hill is an area of Wallsend in North Tyneside. In the mid 19th century Battle Hill was an isolated farmstead - shown on the First Edition Ordnance Survey Map of 1856. The farm was still in existence in 1951.[1] Today, Battle Hill is an estate of modern housing and shops. The area includes Battle Hill Primary School and a campus of Tyne Metropolitan College. The name of the area is sometimes attributed to it being the site of a historical battle or skirmish - but may actually derive from the Old English word 'bottle', meaning building or abode (seen in place-names such as Shilbottle and Walbottle).
