In reality, this is few hundred yards south of the station, sitting on the A186.[Sallyport Crescent are] …the earliest surviving council-built houses in Newcastle having been constructed in 1913-16 under the supervision of Mr Halford, Property Surveyor to the Corporation. The crescent consists of 44 flats with rear yards enclosed by low walls.1 The flats, which were as grim as they look in the film, have been recently semi-renovated.

Access to these are notoriously difficult – beware this if trying to access the rear.
