  • Description

    "For a very short time a neighbourhood near Washington Station was called Belgravia. The site was in that part of the area that developed rapidly in the 1840s with the construction of the North Eastern Railway running north to south, the opening of Washington Iron Works by Joseph Cook and the Washington Chemical by Hugh Lee Pattinson....

About this time the whole of the area up to Glebe Colliery became known as Washington Station...."
