Tyne and Wear HER(12900): Shieldfield, New Bridge Street Goods Station - Details
Shieldfield, New Bridge Street Goods Station
Railway Transport Site
Opened by the North Eastern Railway on 2 January 1907. It was built of concrete and was said to be the largest covered goods station in the country. In September 1941 the station was damaged in Newcastle's worst air raid. The building burned for weeks because it was filled with flammable goods including sugar, linseed and cattle food. The station was demolished in the 1980s and replaced by Warners Cinema.
