Prudhoe Street, Newcastle


Prudhoe Street in central Newcastle was demolished in the 1970s for the building of the Eldon Square Shopping Centre. The Prudhoe Street Mission for the homeless and hungry was founded here by George Bowran in 1910; it was relocated to Westgate Hill when Prudhoe Street was demolished.[1] Also on Prudhoe Street was an entrance to Callers furniture store (the main entrance being on Northumberland Street) and the Prudhoe Arms pub.
