Gilley Law


Gilley Law is one of the smaller suburbs of Sunderland located in between Farringdon and Silksworth and is home to 1500 people. The area is now officially known as Lakeside Village but the old name persists amongst locals. The total area covered by the estate is less than one square mile. It consists of 16 floor tower blocks, which were built in the 1960s.
