A yard, off Stockton High Street. c1967 Posted on June 1, 2002 by Picture Stockton Team An unidentified yard off Stockton High Street. c1967 Share this:TweetWhatsAppEmailLike this:Like Loading... Related
Gents Yard and Victoria Yard are in the block bounded by the High Street, Yarm Lane, West Row and Ramsgate. On the map I can read that Victoria Yard was behind the Victoria Pub on the High Street and I can just see the name Yard further up towards Ramsgate behind the Exchange Pub, (don’t think this pub is there any more) so I am presuming this was Gents Yard, on the census the municipal ward name was Exchange so I am guessing this is the correct area.
Does anyone know where Gents Yard and Victoria Yard were? According to census records I had relatives who were stonemasons living there.
