Nos. 1-5, Ellison Place


Nos. 1-5, Ellison Place (aka Ellison Terrace) in Newcastle was built c.1810. No. 4 has a plaque noting that Cardinal Basil Hume (1923-1999) was born here. Also, no. 5 was the home of William Boutland Wilkinson, an early patentee of reinforced concrete in the modern sense.[1] Most of the terrace is now used by Northumbria University. A photograph from 1965 shows dormer windows in the attics; these are no longer present.[2] The building is Grade II listed on the National Heritage List for England.
