Worswick Street

Worswick Street runs from Pilgrim Street to Carliol Square in Newcastle. The street is named after Father James Worswick (1771-1843), who founded St Andrews' Roman Catholic Church here in 1798 (replaced by the present church building in the 1890s). The modern street took shape when the "new cut" of Worswick Street was laid out c.1870. Worswick Chambers, on the corner of Worswick Street and Pilgrim Street dates from 1891. Worswick Street Bus Station opened here in 1929. The street is undergoing significant development in the 2020's.
