Swirle Pavillion, Newcastle Quayside


April 1998 designed by Raf Fulcher[1]  Commissioned by Tyne and Wear Development Corporation The pavilion has the names of various towns carved around the inner rim that were taken by the artist from a faded sign at Plummer Chare, approximately 500m west. The sign advertised the major destinations of the Tyne-Tees Steam Shipping Company Ltd from Newcastle and Middlesbrough in the nineteenth century. The Pavilion’s name originates from a short street called the Swirle that led from a point at which Sandgate became St. Mary’s Street, where the Half Moon tavern stood in the 1890s.
