Newcastle Carliol Square railway station (site), Tyne & Wear
Newcastle Carliol Square railway station (site), Tyne & Wear
Opened in 1839 by the Newcastle & North Shields Railway, this early station closed to passengers in 1850 when Newcastle Central station was opened as a joint station.
View west towards the buffers, probably at a lower level. The course of the railway was under the raised footbridge, and the buffers would have been near the end of the footbridge, where the steps now are. To the right at one time was His Majesty's Prison in Carliol Square, according to old maps. It is hard to believe a railway terminus (or a prison) was ever here!
