Akenside Hill


Akenside Hill is a street in Newcastle, named after the poet Mark Akenside, who was born there in 1721. In the past the hill was known as Butcher's Bank because of the large number of master butchers who lived there in the 17th and 18th century. The west end of the Hill runs on from Side (street) and climbs north-east to join Dog Bank. Akenside House, which including the Akenside Traders public house, is located at the west end of the street. The Bridge Tavern is located on Akenside Hill under the viaduct of the Tyne Bridge.
