     Hebburn Park officially known as 'Carr Ellison Park'. Originally it was the garden for Hebburn Hall & the lakes were part of the garden. The lakes were created in the late 1800s possibly 1870s by building embankments to act as retainers for the water. They were NOT flooded quarries as I have a 1859 Map showing it was arable land previously. Hebburn did have old Quarries that were flooded but they were near where Campbell Park Rd is today & at the south of the old Leslies Sportsfield (Now a housing estate called Sullivan Walk)

     St Cuthbert's Vicarage. For the health of the Vicar's it was built in the countryside well away from the Church. Close to the church on Argyle St- Ellison St corner were streets of houses plus lots of Industry & all were causing air pollution. Unlike today, every house had a coal fire that was smoky & then the fumes from the Chemical Works & the Sulpher & Copper Works chimneys all causing a health hazard.

     When I was a young man in the 50s this Lake was called 'The Island Lake' as it had a Island overgrown with bushes & small trees. Swan's & ducks nested safely on the Island as no one ever went on it apart from the odd birds egg collector.
