Old Toll House, Swing Bridge, Newcastle

Originally built as a toll house in c.1870, situated by the Swing Bridge in Newcastle. After tolls were no longer charged, the building was used as a mortuary and Coroner’s Court. It had many other uses over the years, including use as the Bridge Medical Centre and as a Recovery Centre (drug addiction). Now (2023), the 'Former Coroners Court' hosts Green Energy Consulting Ltd. The building is Grade II listed on the National Heritage List for England.
