Alderman Fenwick's House, Pilgrim Street

  • Description

    "A C17 merchant's house, built around 1670, and one of the oldest preserved buildings in Newcastle. Alderman Fenwick was Mayor of Newcastle in 1720. It was later a coaching inn, The Queen's Head, and, more recently, the Liberal Club. The building was restored in 1997, and is now offices. You need to climb onto the wall of the former Bank of England, Pilgrim Street on the opposite side of the street to get a good view of the restored cupola and wind vane on the roof:" Photo by Andrew Curtis, 2010, and licensed for reuse under a Creative Commons Licence.
