Newsham Hall, Newsham


Newsham Hall in Stockton-on-Tees is Grade III Listed. Newsham is Anglo-Saxon meaning ‘the new dwelling’ and takes its name from a settlement around the 12th century. In the early 1800s the area was divided into four farms, Featherstone House, Newsham Hall, Newsham Grange and White House. Over the years the land has been sold off and now consists of Newsham Hall, Newsham House, Newsham Grange, Thornhill, Rose Cote, Featherstone House and Grey House.

Winner of the W. Walker Challenge Cup, 1930s

These photographs are of my late grandfather, Walter Henry Rushworth, with his prize winning horse Dolly at Millfield Coalyard and at Norton Show collecting the W. Walker Challenge Cup, during the 1930’s.
Does anyone have any more photo’s of the Millfield Coalyard or have information where the Cup is presently located?
