Demolished Building


This was built for John Walker of Wallsend shortly before 1825 on the south side of Benwell Lane. In 1848 it was sold to the tanner Jonathan Priestman, having been let to John Cookson, another industrialist. Its garden was said to be large and tastefully laid out, with a fountain. In 1879 the house was sold to Edward Bilton and in 1901 to J. Lamb Ltd., brewers, after which it became the Benwell House Hotel. The Hotel closed in 1968 and was demolished in 1972.
