Newland Homes, Whitby and Hartlepool House


Former orphanage by WH Bingley of Hull. Dated 1902. Paid for by benefactors from Whitby and Hartlepool.

MATERIAL: yellow brick with ashlar dressings and gabled and hipped slate roofs with three coped ridge stacks.

EXTERIORI: plinth, ground-floor lintel band, first-floor sill band, traceried bargeboards to main gables. Two storeys; eight -window range. Windows are plain sashes, mostly with stone transoms. Hipped projecting centre has two windows on each floor, the larger ground-floor windows divided by a gabled brick buttress. On either side, a recess with a plain window above and below, a half-glazed door with an inscribed datestone with crest above it. Flanking wings have each two windows and below, a hipped square brick bay window with two sashes.

This complex of orphan homes and ancillary buildings was built 1895-1902 by the Port of Hull Society and endowed by various benefactors whose names are attached to the various buildings. The Port of Hull Society for the Religious Instruction of Seamen was founded in 1821. The society established the Sailors’ Orphans Institution in 1836, but it did not have a permanent home until the Park Street orphanage was built in 1868-9, largely funded by (Sir) Titus Salt of Saltaire. The orphanage in Park Street was sold in 1897, by which time all the children were accommodated in the new complex on Cottingham Road.
