Elvaston Gallery

This gallery contains photos of Elvaston Road and the roads in the surrounding area (including St Andrew’s, St Nicholas, St Hilda’s, St Oswald’s and St George’s Roads).

Building in the Elvaston area of Hexham began around 1895. The name probably derives from Elvaston Gardens at Elvaston Castle in Derbyshire. These were developed by Charles Stanhope, the 4th Earl of Harrington, and opened to the public by the 5th Earl in 1852. They rapidly gained countrywide fame and were a favourite resort until the first world war. They have now been open again by Derbyshire County Council and the Elvaston Gardens Trust.
