Welcome to Burton Collingwood
Property specialists in the North East of England
We are a privately owned family property company with a portfolio of residential and commerical properties predominantly across North Shields and Tynemouth.
If you are interested in renting any of our properties, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
The family has a long history of being involved in property in the North East. Hastie Burton founded his own building firm in July 1904 before later incorporating Hastie D. Burton Ltd in 1927 during which time he built properties on a number of well-known streets including The Broadway, Millfield Gardens, Millview Drive and Queensway. Hastie also served as the Mayor of Tynemouth before passing on the reigns of Hastie D. Burton Ltd to his son, Dan and then Garry.
Hastie D. Burton Ltd was sold in 2007 to Northern Bear leading to the creation of Burton Collingwood Ltd as owner and landlord of the properties. The majority of the properties managed today remain those built by Hastie, Dan and Garry!
Garry has now been joined by his two sons - Peter and Christopher, the fourth generation of Burton’s who are both looking forward to the future progression of the firm.
In addition to Burton Collingwood Ltd, other companies include Church Way Investments Ltd and Murton Farm Estate Ltd which were formed in 2003 and 1944 respectively.
Church Way Investments has both commercial and residential properties based in North Shields whilst Murton Farm is an active farm along with an aspiration to develop the recently demolished steading adjacent to the refurbished farmhouse.
Garry is a member of the Chartered Institute of Builders and joined Hastie D. Burton Ltd in 1973 following a brief spell with Brims builders. Garry remains involved in the building trade and is on the committee for the Northern Counties Builders Federation (NCBF).
Garry remains active in his spare time and is a past Captain at Alnmouth Golf Club where he sits on the Committee as Chair of House.
A member of the Institute of Chartered Accountants Scotland, Peter started his career as a trainee accountant at BP before moving to Bank of America Merrill Lynch both of which were based in London. Peter returned to the North East in October 2014.
Peter has a young family and enjoys getting out on his bike when time allows.
