Redhead Terrace

On another web site somebody was looking for a Redhead Terrace, does anybody know of such a street in SS as it doesn't seem to be on any current maps.

Readhead Terrace is not on the old maps either. There was a Readhead Street which was opposite the town hall near Percy Street but no longer there. That does not mean that there was no Readhead Terrace as it could be one of the Terraces on Ocean Road or Dean Road and one or two other main roads as these often had each block with diferent names that are not listed on the maps. Someone will probably come up with it soon.

There is a Redhead Terrace that runs from Horsley Hill Road down to Mowbray Road parallel with Westoe Terrace and St. Michael's Terrace. It has a top notch fish and chip shop in it!

There is a Readhead Avenue runs from Horsley Hill Road to Mowbray Road at least that is how it is named in the A-Z so is it a misprint or has Curly made a mistake? would be interested to know or perhaps the person who made the initial inquiry got it wrong?

The Redhead Terrace the person was looking for from the 1881 census is listed as being in the Hedworth, Monkton-Jarrow district. Out of the areas my maps cover I'm afraid.
