Tyne and Wear HER(15057): Newcastle, Regent Street - Details
Newcastle, Regent Street
Road Transport Site
Laid out after Forth Street (1811) but before Thomas Oliver's map of 1830. In existence by 1827. The name suggests an expression of loyalty to the ruling dynasty. Regent Street was intended to run straight down to the edge of the escarpment above the river.
