Religious Ritual and Funerary

Place of Worship


Early Modern


Demolished Building

The name Temple Street marks the presence of a synagogue shown on Oliver's plan of 1838 lying on the junction of Peel Lane and Temple Street. It had a plaque on it which read "JEWS SYNAGOGUE: ERECTED SEPT XIX: VD XC VIII" (ie 1838). Although there is now no surviving evidence for this synagogue, as it was demolished in the 1920s, the Jewish graveyard still lies across Peel Lane to the rear of the present Newcastle Lighting Centre (see HER 5093) {1}. A marriage certificate of 1877 and deeds from 1855-1892 relating to this synagogue survive in Tyne and Wear Archives (C/NC56) {2}. In 1908 the building was known as Temple Street Methodist Mission. The plaque is placed outside the Gosforth Synagogue.
