Line Building East


The original Line Building East on Percy Street in Newcastle was built in the 1920s, and was demolished and rebuilt c.2015. The name of the building relates to its former owners, John Line and Sons Ltd., which was a national company which designed and produced wallpaper. A warehouse belonging to the company stood to the north of the Line Building and the two were connected by a bridge. The building was purchased by The University of Durham, Kings College - later Newcastle University. Over time the building was used for the Strata Control Research Laboratory, the Department of Metallurgy and then the Archaeology Department. In the 1960s the University took over the first and second floors above the adjoining Crows Nest.[1] A glazed bridge connected the two buildings. The Line Building East was demolished and replaced by a new four storey building, plus basement, with glazed bridge link at level 2 connecting the new building to the south west side of the main INTO Building at Newcastle University.
