Tyne and Wear HER(12120): Wallsend, Crow Bank, Mordue Brewery - Details
Wallsend, Crow Bank, Mordue Brewery
Brewing and Malting Site
Joseph Mordue junior was school master in Wallsend in 1818. By 1858 he had built a brewery behind the old school house (Jasmine House, HER 7364). The Mordue Brewery was revived as a business in 1995 and continues to brew on a new site north of Wallsend Green. The tightly packed brewery buildings are still there, grouped around a courtyard off Boyd Road, now in residential use. Good example of vernacular architecture - plain, robust buildings with no ornamentation. Characteristic first floor loading doors survive.
