Tyne and Wear HER(9929): Newcastle, Old Eldon Square

  • Description

    "Old Eldon Square was laid out within a three sided development of 1825-31, which John Dobson designed for Richard Grainger. Formerly surrounded by railings, the space was opened out when the large equestrian bronze war memorial was erected, and paths were laid for access to it. Old Eldon Square is one of the only areas of green space within the city centre and is important to those who enjoy going there to relax and escape the bustle of the shops and businesses in the city. It is a space loved by young and old alike..."
