2-8 Grey Street

Nos. 2-8 (even numbers) Grey Street in Newcastle. The sandstone ashlar building has a rounded corner, with 4 bays on Grey Street and one wide bay on Mosley Street. It was built in c.1842 by John Dobson(?) for Richard Grainger, and was the last part of Grey Street to be completed as part of the 19th century redevelopment of the city centre. Because of the existence of earlier cellars on the site, and the reduced height of the building, compared to its neighbours - it has been suggested that Grainger may not have demolished the earlier 18th century building that existing on the corner, but merely dressed it up in stone and refurbished the interior. Nos. 2-8 Grey Street are Grade II listed on the National Heritage List for Newcastle. Today, the building is part of the Grey Street Hotel, which straddles nos. 2-12 Grey Street. < No. 10 Grey Street Nos. 1-3 Grey Street >
