Tyne and Wear HER(15543): Newcastle, Northumberland Street

  • Description

    "In the 18th century it was a suburb of the medieval town, with three-storey brick houses. Originally called Bath Road because it led to the old Northumberland Baths opened in 1839 (replaced 1928). Old deeds mention the number of riggs each medieval plot contained - a reminder of town fields here, outside the town wall. At the north end, the proportions of these houses may be discerned above garish modern shop fronts. C.1890 named Northumberland Road. Further south the 20th century takes over. Large shops were developed here in the early 1930s...."
