Tyne and Wear HER(644): Tinkler Row Quarry, rectilinear enclosure - Details
Tinkler Row Quarry, rectilinear enclosure
In 1979 Selkirk photographed from the air a possible rectilinear enclosure straddling the road from Birkhead Lane to Sunniside, south-east of the former Tinkler Row Quarry. An apparent boundary bank outlined its sides south of the road, and a full rectangle seems to show in the 1:10,000 vertical aerial photographs. The site is not apparent on the ground and may since have been opencasted.
