Extant Building

Shown on second edition Ordnance Survey. Byker Buildings was a street of tenement housing with the Cumberland Arms at the western end. It was proposed for enlargement circa 1898. The then owner was a Mr Thompson of Whickham. This was never undertaken. Instead a Mr James Cackett was engaged to make internal alterations - increasing the bar area and adding a new faƧade. Nos. 2 and 3 James Place were incorporated into the public house. This plan survives largely unchanged today. LOCAL LIST
