• Description

    "Industrial workers' dwellings with shop. 1869 and extension dated 1878. By John Johnstone for the Newcastle upon Tyne Improved Industrial Dwellings Co. Ltd., established 1869. Polychrome English bond brick (4 and one) with painted ashlar dressings; rubble rear gable to right return range; Welsh slate roof with stone gable coping, brick anal rendered chimneys, and brick and wrought iron parapet. 4:5:4 storeys, 13:5:13 windows. Angle pilasters to 5-bay, 5-storey centrepiece. ... The building is important both for its townscape value and as probably the earliest surviving example in Newcastle of philanthropic housing provision for industrial workers. The building is a significant feature in a historic setting on high ground; immediately in front is the Keelmen's Hospital of 1701; immediately to the south-west is the Sallyport Tower with the Ships' Carpenters' Hall of 1716 on the medieval Town Wall. All Saints' Church is prominent beyond the Sallyport Tower..."
