Clayton Street


Clayton Street and Clayton Street West

Clayton Street runs from the centre of Newcastle past the Grainger Market down into Clayton Street West. Clayton Street West has a junction with Westgate Road after which it continues on to end at a junction with Westmorland Road, near Central Station. In the past Clayton Street had many clothes shops and there were also furniture stores, it now has a more diverse range of shops and cafes. The Street is named after John Clayton, who was a town clerk in the city during the 19th century. He worked with builder Richard Grainger and architect John Dobson to redevelop the centre of the Newcastle in a neoclassical style. Richard Grainger's family home was at 36 Clayton Street West from 1842 -1861. Grainger also had his office at 28 Clayton Street West. St Mary's Cathedral is off Clayton Street West.
