Tyne and Wear HER(5288): Newcastle, Charlotte Square, garden

  • Description

    "Charlotte Square, built by William Newton in 1770, was the first housing development associated with a garden square in Newcastle. It was built to provide accommodation for the 'respectable' members of society. The square was presumably named after Charlotte, the Queen and wife of George III.

Trees appear to have been planted around the edge of the square...."
