  • Here are the details of maps for Rowlands Gill:

  • Co Durham Sheet 6.09 Rowlands Gill 1895 - published 2000; intro by Jennifer Gill. ISBN.978-1-84151-187-0

    This very detailed map covers the village of Rowlands Gill, today at the southern end of Gateshead Borough. In 1895 this was scarcely a village and there was little here other than a row of houses, a station on the NER Consett Branch, and the Towneley Arms. To the north is the Lily Drift mine. The River Derwent meanders through the map and to the east is Gibside with its grounds and mausoleum chapel, by James Paine. The map stretches east to Gibside Hill Head. On the reverse we include part of sheet 5.12, extending coverage west to Victoria Garesfield and its colliery , with the Victoria Garesfield Colliery Railway.

    The map links up with Sheet 6.13 Burnopfield to the south.
