112-118 Pilgrim Street*, NE1
Buillt c 1902 by C E Oliver for the Consett Iron Company. The building's appeal lies in its basic simplicity without pavilions or any set backs, but with a strong rhythm of diminishing sized windows up the building, and alternate pointed and curved window heads across the first floor frontage. The building is Grade II listed LinkExternal link .

* Pilgrim Street, running north-south down to cross the Tyne, could be the oldest route in Newcastle. The name has traditionally been connected with the crowds of pilgrims from all over the country who passed along it and through the Pilgrim Gate in the Town Walls LinkExternal link to visit St. Mary’s Chapel in Jesmond. After NZ2563 : The Tyne Bridge was opened in 1928, all the A1 traffic between London and Edinburgh was channelled up Pilgrim Street.
