Many of these features have been incorporated in the houses built around 2003/4 and in the new parts of Shortstown. Some houses in Shorts Avenue for example have circular windows whilst others have arched brickwork over their upper windows.
Is there anyone out there that can tell us anything about the style of these buildings? It is believed that they were designed by a Newcastle Architect named Mr J T Clackett. It is recorded that the Short brothers insisted on the best quality materials and layouts to be adopted for their workers houses in spite of the shortage of materials due to the war.
