The Imperial Gazetteer of England & Wales 1870

BLAYDON, a small town in Winlaton township and parish, Durham; on the river Tyne, and on the Newcastle and Carlisle railway, 4 miles W of Newcastle-on-Tyne. It was not long ago a small village; but it acquired importance from a large manufacture of articles in fire-clay, and from transit communication, by river and by railway, with neighbouring iron-works and collieries; and it is now a considerable, well-built place, with regular streets running N and S. It has a post-office called Blaydon-on-Tyne, a station with telegraph on the railway, two chief inns, a mechanics’ institute, a handsome church, much improved in 1869, and three Methodist chapels. Axwell Park, the fine seat of Sir W. A. Clavering, Bart., is in the vicinity.
