Towards Central Station from the Castle Keep
Towards Central Station from the Castle Keep
The Castle Keep provides wonderful views in all directions including the one west towards Central Station. It has been used as a vantage point by other photographers and there are several photos already posted here. One clear change made recently was the 2010 demolition of the old wooden British Rail parcels warehouse on Westgate Road (just to the right of the car park) NZ2463 : Former British Rail Parcel Offices, Westgate Road.
It is visible, for example, in the following photographs: 1966 NZ2463 : View from the keep, 1970 NZ2463 : Rail entrance to Newcastle Central Station, 1982 NZ2463 : Station approach - as it was, and already boarded up in 2005 NZ2463 : Newcastle station
There is planning permission on its site for a 6-storey Sleeperz hotel which will also use the railway arches below LinkExternal link
