67-71 Clayton Street, NE1
Clayton Street was named in honour of John Clayton (1792 - 1890) who was the Town Clerk of Newcastle from 1822 to 1867. Clayton worked with the builder Richard Grainger and architect John Dobson to redevelop the centre of the city in a neoclassical style; he also did much to preserve the remains of Hadrian's Wall. For further info, see the Wiki entry LinkExternal link .

Clayton Street was the last to be built by Grainger, and much of it was still unfinished by 1845. It is inferior in design and materials to Grainger Street, and much inferior to Grey Street. It was built as single houses of three window bays wide above shops, with a staircase entrance directly off the street at one side.

The section of Clayton Street north of no. 67 (left) has been redeveloped - see NZ2464 : Junction of Newgate Street & Clayton Street (photographed by Andrew Curtis). The three houses, nos. 67-71, are the only remaining examples of Grainger's work in this north-eastern section of Clayton Street. They are very plain, having only moulded window sills and cornices. The buildings are Grade II listed LinkExternal link .
