I believe there are two 1927 prefab houses in Embleton, called Sycamore Cottages. They are of reinforced concrete with cavity walls. They were shown in the North East Coast exhibition on Newcastle's Town Moor in 1929.

What do people think of them?

W.T. Stead the great journalist and controversialist was born at the Old Manse. What does his plaque say? He went down with the Titanic.
