Old Stephenson Building, Newcastle University

The original Stephenson Building on Claremont Road at Newcastle University was built in 1951, designed by Edwards & Manby. The building was named in honour of engineering pioneer George Stephenson. It was officially opened by HRH The Duke of Edinburgh on the 28th November 1951; the Duke was also awarded an Honorary Doctor of Civil Law on that day. Much of the 1950's building was demolished in 2022, when the new Stephenson Building was built. However,  some of the original building's remaining teaching and office spaces in the east wing remain and are being rennovated during 2023-4.
