Chare

  • Description

    "A chare, in the dialect of North-east England, is a narrow medieval street or alley. Chares and much of the layout of Newcastle's Quayside date from medieval times. At one point, there were 20 chares in Newcastle. After the great fire of Newcastle and Gateshead in 1854, a number of the chares were permanently removed although many remain in existence today. Chares also are still present in the higher parts of the city centre...." Referenced article
