Howdon, North Tyneside

Howdon is an area in the eastern part of Wallsend, Tyne and Wear, England, a former coal-mining and shipbuilding town on the north banks of the River Tyne. Most of Howdon was built after the Second World War, as the consequence of a drive for improved, low-cost housing for working-class families. This housing was mainly in the public sector, being owned and maintained by the local council.
