Newbiggin

All the thatched cottages were replaced by modern ones. There were no houses on either Broughton Road & Mount Crescent or the bottom of Middlecave at the end of the Mount it was an open field occupied by Mr. John Snarry – Veterinary. The only house up Middlecave was occupied by Mr. Jump then Mr. Edstone followed by Mr. Harold Wrangham and it was rebuilt and now occupied by Mrs. Morgan. The house Miss Constable lived was built by Captain Copperthwaite. Then further up were three white-washed cottages and a WINDMILL occupied by the late Mr. David Blair's father. Beyond was a house occupied by Captain Cumberland. The house occupied by Mr. George Slater and later Mr. Beswick, opposite Mount Crescent was a Ladies' School run by Miss Masterman. At the end of the Mount where Miss Metcalfe lived was THE PINFOLD (stray cattle were impounded until the owners paid for their release). A lot of Newbiggin has been demolished to make way for Agricultural Stores and later Jackson's Super Market, some have been left empty lots and some turned into a road.
