John Wardle (c1827-1899)


John Wardle (c1827-1899) was an architect in Newcastle, whose work included the design of several buildings on and around Grainger Street, as part of Richard Grainger's redevelopment of the city centre in the mid 19th century. Probably he is best known as architect of the Hancock Museum.  He also rebuilt Cordwainers' Hall (part of the south range of Blackfriers) in 1843.
