Each week we will be highlighting one of our surrounding suburbs with some information about the suburb for potential buyers looking at the area. This week’s suburb is KILLINGWORTH

The small suburb of Killingworth (established 1892) is west of Barnsley and south of West Wallsend and Holmesville is 23km from Newcastle City. Killingworth has a population of 679 people (Census 2016). Killingworth was originally a coal mining town, with the last coal mined at West Wallsend Colliery in 2016. 

Killingworth features a lovely children’s playground, great for the growing family.

Killingworth Hotel opened in October 1891 and was in operation until November 1970. Sydney Emanuel was the longest running publican at Killingworth Hotel, from 1930-1961. It is now a lovely private residence.

See below for some old, and new, photos of Killingworth.
