M.E.A. House, Ellison Place, Newcastle

  • Description

    "An original building, by local practice Ryder & Yates, 1974, "the first British building to be purpose-built to house many voluntary services". It is still connected to some of the few remaining fragments of elevated walkway planned as part of the city's 1963 development plan. Unusually, the listing spells out a number of reasons for its designation: engineering interest, architectural interest, accessibility, architects, degree of survival, and social context. Grade II listed. It is now an office block for the exclusive use of charities. See also http://www.geograph.org.uk/photo/1681916." Photo by Stephen Richards, 2012.
