Painter Heugh, Newcastle


Painter Heugh was one of the Medieval streets of Newcastle, part of which still exists today. In Medieval times it connected the lower part of Dean Street with Pilgrim Street. The line of inter Heugh is now broken by the multi-storey car park, railway viaducts and the road approaches to the Tyne Bridge. The name Painter Heugh is thought to be derived from ships tied up here in the tidal parts of the Lort Burn, now culverted and no longer seen.[1

"Dr. Pearson, another physician to this institution [The Dispensary, Newcastle], also for some time gave advice to the poor gratis, in a house in the Painter Heugh, called "Pearson's Dispensary." (Mackenzie and Dent, Newcastle-upon-Tyne, 1827)
