Cross House, Westgate Road


Cross House is a distinctive office building on the corner of Westgate Road and Fenkle Steet in Newcastle. It was designed by Cackett and Burns Dick architects and built 1911.[1] There was an earlier Cross House; a 17th century brick mansion, later used as a vicarage, which was demolished when Westgate Road was widened in the early 1900s.[2] Outside the present building is the statue of Joesph Cowen.
