Pink Lane


Pink LanePink Lane dates from Medieval times and ran along the inside of the Town Walls in Newcastle. The 13th centuary section of the wall on Pink Lane ran from the Pink Tower to Gunner Tower; Pink Tower was demolished in 1852 for developments on Clayton Street West; only the ruined base of Gunner Tower still remains. Whilst there are few remains of the wall left by Bath Lane (the largest surviving sections are the west wall near Bath Lane), the pub called The Town Wall gives a clue to its past. In todays Newcastle, Pink Lane runs from Clayton Street West down towards Neville Street and there is a cutting to Westgate Road, and the lane also links with Thomas Bewick Square / Bewick Street. Pink Lane includes a number of historic buildings. NE1 5DW
