Gateshead Dispensary, Nelson Street


Early 19th century villa on Nelson Street in Gateshead. Prompted by the outbreak of cholera in 1831, the building was purchased for use as Gateshead Pharmacy from 1832 to 1946. Later the building was used by the Borough Housing Department. This is a Grade II listed building.
