Alderman Fenwick's House, 98 Pilgrim Street, NE1
Alderman Fenwick's House, 98 Pilgrim Street, NE1
Late 17th C with 18th C alterations. A rare survival in Newcastle of a merchant's house. The Fenwick family played a prominent role in the commerce and government of the town - and the name continues: see NZ2464 : Fenwick's Department Store, Northumberland Street (photographed by Andrew Curtis). From a house, the building became a coaching inn (the Queen's Head), then from 1884 it became Newcastle's Liberal Club. The property had been empty for over 25 years when in 1982 the Tyne and Wear Building Preservation Trust began restoration work with the aid of architects Simpson and Brown of Edinburgh. The building is Grade I listed LinkExternal link . See also NZ2564 : 112-118 Pilgrim Street*, NE1.
