Newcastle, Old Eldon Square
Old Eldon Square is a public square on Blackett Street. As well as green space the square is the site of the city’s war memorial (NZ2464 : War Memorial, Old Eldon Square).

Eldon Square was built as part of the 1825–40 reconstruction of Newcastle city centre by Richard Grainger, who commissioned John Dobson to produce designs. The original design was for three terraces facing a central square. In the 1960s the west and north terraces around the square were demolished to be replaced by part of Eldon Square Shopping Centre which now dominates Old Eldon Square.
