Seven abandoned Newcastle buildings and what they used to be

There are a number of sites in Newcastle and Gateshead which have lay empty for a number of years.

Newcastle and Gateshead are constantly undergoing redevelopment and revamps but more often than not buildings get left behind.

Some of these buildings have been adandoned for decades and fallen into such a state of disrepair there are no plans for what comes next. Others are about to be given a new lease of life after lying dormant for too long.

All of the buildings on this list are historic and a part of Newcastle’s DNA; most of them dating back hundreds of years and some of them protected by heritage projects.
