Houghton Blind Centre, Thornhill Street, which opened in 1955. There are two commemorative stones, only one of which is still legible:
THIS STONE WAS LAID BY COUN. T.W. URWIN J.P. CHAIRMAN OF THE COUNCIL ON 21ST MAY 1955

The eroded stone (left of the door) was laid by Lady Serena James.

Houghton Heritage Vol 2:
Houghton-le-Spring in Colour
New local history book available soon.

The Houghton Heritage Society logo is based on the Gilpin Crest of wild boar, crescent moon and oak tree. This specific boar design comes from a wooden carving in the old Houghton Urban District Council chamber while the oak tree is based on a 1970s drawing by a pupil from the then Sancroft School. Quite a combination!
