Blackett Street, Newcastle


Blackett Street"This street follows the line of the early lane that ran outside the Town Wall between the New Gate and the Pilgrim Gate. The town wall was removed in the eighteenth century and the street was improved by Richard Grainger in 1824 and named Blackett Street. It was named after John Erasmus Blackett (1728-1814) Newcastle's mayor in the eighteenth century. The stones from the town wall were said to have been used to build the main sewer in Blackett Street." (SiteLines) The eastern section of Blackett Street, from the junction with Northumberland Street, includes the Northern Goldsmiths building (1895) and Eldon Buildings (1897). The western section of the Blackett Street, after Grey's Monument, includes the Emmerson Chambers (1903, now Waterstones bookshop), Old Eldon Square, the Eldon Square Shopping Centre, and the unusual Parsons Polygon (a sculpture and ventilation shaft!).
