Sheriff Hill

Whelan (1856): "Sheriff Hill is about two miles south of Gateshead, and derives its name from the custom which formerly prevailed of the sheriff of Newcastle coming to this place to meet the justices itinerant. Here is the parish church, and places of worship belonging to the Wesleyan Methodists, and the Wesleyan New Connexion. Sheriff Hill Lunatic Asylum is pleasantly situated on an eminence, about two and a half miles south of Gateshead, from which a fine prospect of Ravensworth and its vicinity may be obtained. Samuel Kent, proprietor; Benjamin Barkers, MD physician."
