The Coatsworth Road Archive is an archive that will be developed during 2017. It will include archive material on the history of Coatsworth Road in Bensham, Gateshead and will also contain new research and material about Coatsworth Road in the present for future reference. Collectively, the material will tell us the story of Coatsworth Road and its rich built and cultural heritage.

This archive is part of the Coatsworth Road Townscape Heritage Initiative (THI) being run by Gateshead Council and funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund. It is primarily a resource to support the school and community engagement work being run by 22 Sheds but all are invited to look at it and use it.
