Ridley Villas, 91 New Bridge Street


Ridley Villas, 91 New Bridge Street, Newcastle, were built in the 1820s. They were once part of a row of grand residential houses, possibly designed by John Dobson. The villas were built on land belonging to Sir Matthew White Ridley. In December 1914 the building became the premisis of Newcastle Tuberculosis Dispensary, later called Newcastle (East) Chest Clinic. By the 1960s Ridley Villas was being used as a general NHS medical unit, which closed in 1972. For a time the building was used as a hostel.
