8 Nelson Street, NE1

  • Description

    "Built c 1836, probably by John Wardle, for Richard Grainger. More Italiante than some of Grainger's buildings, with its balustrade, bracketed cornice, windows with heavy sills, and a central pedimented window with its own little blind balustrade. It was clearly intended to the be eastern wing of the row of buildings on the north side of Nelson Street: there is an identical western one at [[4421715]]. The ground floor is now The Café Royal http://caferoyalnewcastle.co.uk/ , but the Eldon Centre has reduced most of the building to a facade only. The building is Grade II listed http://list.historicengland.org.uk/resultsingle.aspx?uid=1024810 . The Buildings of Grainger Town - No.48. See [[4406042]]." Photo by Mike Quinn, 2013.
