when william nellist died winifred nellist and her children lived at the house at winchester terrace william (son) married and moved out as well as wendy and margorie lived with her until her death
the school closed with the death and none of the children followed their fathers footsteps going in to other fields including mechanical engineering. his great grandaughter is at college doing aeronautical engineering
i have been trying to find photos of my grandfather and grandmother etc back then but the school etc have been converted into flats and offices internally the fronts are all the same as they are protected westgate road ajoins the street via a arch or you can come up past the old nunnery but apart from the people in them the area has not changed it still has a park and bowling green etc and could well do a catherine cookson film if it is any help it is easy to get to from the central station either walking or by bus up westgate road and on to elswick road
