Tyne and Wear HER(6500): Newcastle, Groat Market (Meal Market)

  • Description

    "Its east side was destroyed for the new Town Hall and Exchange in 1855 and in the early 1960s a large section on the west side was cleared for Thomson House. Groats were a cereal; they were oats with the husks removed or the grains crushed and were used to feed humans and animals."
