Burt Hall, Northumbria University


Burt HallBurt Hall is located on Northumberland Road on the Newcastle campus of Northumbria University. It was originally built in 1895 by John W. Dyson for the Northumberland Miners' Association.[1] The building is named after Thomas Burt (1837-1922), who was General Secretary of the Northumberland miners for 27 years, and  an M.P., becoming Secretary of the Board of Trade in 1892.[2] The building also has a plaque commemorating William Straker (1855-1941), who was a social reformer and leader of the Northumberland Branch of the National Union of Mineworkers. Burt Hall continued to be the headquarters of the Northumberland Branch of the National Union of Mineworkers until the early 1990s, after which it was acquired by Northumbria University. Burt Hall is a Grade II listed building.
