Nos. 170 -175, High Street West, Sunderland


This row of 18th century buildings on High Street West in Sunderland, is being restored by the Tyne & Wear Buildings Preservation Trust. Number 173 was the location of George Binns' original haberdashery store in 1811 - which laid the foundation for the chain of Binns Department Stores (now subsumed into House of Fraser).[1] Numbers 170, 171, 173 were originally built as two houses, later converted into shops and re-fronted - they are Grade II listed.[2]
