Dog Bank


Dog Bank is a narrow street in Newcastle upon Tyne, which joins Akenside Hill and runs around the south edge of the churchyard of All Saints Church. It dates from medieval times, when it linked the three main routes through the town. "Anciently there was a sloped bank, about 10 yards broad, called the Dog Bank, close to the outside of the wall which led from Sandgate-gate down towards the river, by which horses were brought to their daily waterings, and through which passengers descended, and turned eastward along the shore." (Gray, 1649)
