Documentary Evidence


Richard Major was licensee and brewer of the Crooked Billet in Kirton Terrace, Elswick in the early 1860s. Around 1874 Robert Johnson took over. The pub was put up for auction in 1896 and was advertised as covering 400 square yards with a large frontage onto Scotswood Road. At the rear was "a substantial building, formerly a brewery but now used as a cellar, coach-house, two-stalled stable and joiner's workshop". It sold for £15,800. James Deuchar rebuilt it. It finally closed in 1984.
