taken 11 years ago, near to Gateshead, England

The Newgate Centre and Hotel, Newgate Street, NE1
The Newgate Centre and Hotel, Newgate Street, NE1
Another of Newcastle's Masterpieces of Modern Architecture Link built c 1969 in the form, now sadly familiar all over the country, of a low but extensive podium of shops out of which emerge tall towers of flats or offices. Here, it was a tall slab block (mercifully only 9 storeys) of concrete-faced hotel, that dominates the views of, and from, such historic spaces as Bigg Market. The whole centre was refurbished in 1994. The western side of the hotel is shown in NZ2464 : Newgate Hotel (photographed by Andrew Curtis). See also NZ2464 : Junction of Newgate Street & Clayton Street (again photographed by Andrew Curtis) in which you get two of Newcastle's Masterpieces of Modern Architecture for the price of one. See also NZ2464 : The Newgate Centre and Hotel, Newgate Street, NE1 (2).
