Rye Hill House, NCG


Rye Hill House is the headquarters of NCG (who manage a group of 6 colleges, including Newcastle College). The building dates from c.1840[1]. It was originally built as a vicarage for St Nicholas’ Cathedral. Later the building was used as a Ear, Nose and Throat Hospital (ENT is now at the Freeman Hospital). From 1989 the building was vacated and stood empty until 2006, when it was re-developed with a contemporary, 4 storey extension, to form part of the Newcastle College Campus[2] - It was part of Newcastle College - the Rye Hill House and Visitor Centre, until becoming the headquarters of NCG in October 2017. The building is Grade II listed.
