Tyne and Wear HER(1544): Newcastle town wall, curtain east of New Gate - Details
Newcastle town wall, curtain east of New Gate
The curtain wall between New Gate and Bertram Momboucher Tower measured 126 yards. In 1765 it was pierced just east of the Gate by a footway to give access to Sidgate from inside the town. The whole stretch of town wall between New Gate and Pilgrim Street Gate was demolished in 1824 for the formation of Blackett Street, and the line of this stretch lies under the south side of the street.
