House of Correction

The former Tynemouth House of Correction and Justice Room on Tynemouth Road in North Shields was built in 1792. It was converted into a workshop in 1906 and significantly altered late 20th century.[1] The House of Correction was originally a prison for minor offenders, with the more serious offenders being sent to the County Gaol in Morpeth (at that time Tynemouth was part of Northumberland). The Justices Room served as the local court house. The prisoner's meals were prepared in the cellar kitchens of the Tynemouth Lodge Hotel, next door.[2] Circuit judges regularly stayed overnight at the Tynemouth Lodge Hotel when working at the Justice Room.
