Demolished Building


This was situated in Shield Street, overlooking the 'Shield Field', where Charles I was allowed to play 'goff' while imprisoned in Newcastle during the Civil War, resting at the house. It was owned by Alderman Sir Richard Walter Plummer in 1917, who presented it to the Council to ensure its preservation. It was finally demolished in 1960 and the area was redeveloped with high rise flats.
