Hancock Museum
Hancock Museum
Building by John Wardle in 1878 for the Newcastle Natural History Society in the Greek Revival style. The museum was named after renowned local naturalists, John and Albany Hancock. Lord Armstrong made a generous contribution to its cost, and his statue stands outside. The platform in front of the museum is made up of 3m long slabs of sandstone brought from Haydon Bridge by train. The building was extended and converted into the Great North Museum in 2008-9.
