Tyne and Wear HER(1593): Byker, Thomas Thompson's House - Details
Byker, Thomas Thompson's House
At the centre of the Conservative Working Men's Club is a sandstone ashlar 2 storey house. It has three bays, a characteristically pitched roof and may be identified with the house shown on a 1767 plan, later identified as belonging to Mr. Thomas Thompson. It may also overlie an earlier structure since it lies at a significant point on the turnpike road (HER ref. 1191).
