003061:Darn Crook Newcastle upon Tyne 1889

  • Description

    Description : It is uncertain how the street got it's name but it is possible that darn means dark and crook means bent from the shape of road. Until 1810 it was a cul de sac with the city walls running along the top. The walls were later knocked down at this point. The photograph shows St. Andrews Churchyard on the right hand side. The left hand side is the current site of the Co-operative department store.
