Newcastle in 50 Buildings

Availability: Out of stock

Author: Steve Ellwood

Newcastle in 50 Buildings takes us on a journey through the city’s proud architectural heritage, from its earliest existing building – the twelfth-century Norman castle which gives the city its name – through medieval religious institutions and Jacobean buildings on the Quayside to the Georgian-era houses and shops – often referred to as ‘Tyneside Classical’ – built by the famed developer Richard Grainger. The book also shows how Newcastle has continued to redevelop and reinvent itself through its most notable contemporary buildings.

Born and bred in Newcastle, writer and photographer Steve Ellwood tells the story of his home city through its greatest buildings with the assistance of a series of contemporary and old photographs, postcard images and drawings. Steve also hopes that this book will encourage readers to visit the city and see these buildings for themselves as well as discovering the city’s other architectural delights.
