The (former) Cordwainers Hall, 16-22 Nelson Street, NE1

  • Description

    "Built 1838 for Richard Grainger, it forms the western end of the north side of Nelson Street. It has a plain six bay section and a two-bay end pavilion which, unusually, has a tight semi-circular bay with curved sashes - see [[4421739]]; this was where the (then) new Nelson Street met the old High Friar Chare at an acute angle. The building, now only a facade, is Grade II listed http://list.historicengland.org.uk/resultsingle.aspx?uid=1096855 . The Buildings of Grainger Town - No.52. See [[4406042]]. The cordwainers, one of the 12 mediaeval guilds in Newcastle, were shoemakers - for further info, see the Wiki entry http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cordwainer ." Photo by Mike Quinn, 2013.
