Swirle Pavillion, Quayside

  • Description

    Swirle Pavillion - Raf Fulcher 1998 Both a sculpture and a building, the Swirle Pavillion appears to be a folly for the Quayside. It has the names of various towns carved around the inner rim taken by the artist from a faded sign at Plummer Chare and were the destinations for a local shipping company. The pavilion takes its name from a hidden stream, which flows into the Tyne at this point.
