When you consider the extent of demolition that has taken place in Newcastle and Gateshead it makes me very nervous to see anything pre 1945 being demolished.

10 And 10A Bridge Street Gateshead NE8 2BH - Demolition as at 11/04/13

Follow up to post of 7/04/13 above:-

Thompsons of Prudhoe machine now offsite so these pictures by myself close up to show state of works as at 11/04/13 approx 1230












Looks like some work still to be carried out

Following the discussion after post 1006 on the Gateshead Developments thread my impression that the black rectangle was piece of electrical equipment is incorrect as a walk across the imported topsoil and close up inspection reveals it to be an opening in brickwork

That brickwork has been used to fill in a previous door opening - there being an void behind but without a torch unable to see full extent of area and height

Stick your camera in there Ken, flash on and just blast away, should hit lucky with at least one of the shots.

Stonework looks quite old - perhaps from an earlier building/retaining wall. No doubt the archaeologists will be employed should there be any plans to build on the site in future.

Tried to do that Steve but with motorised long zoom on today (for pictures across Tyne for Federation Brewery and Go Ahead Bus Depot - covered on separate threads) could not focus and therefore would not flash

Plans for world's largest shipping container garden with bars and restaurants at the Gateshead Quays

From Chronicle Live website on 04/10/17

EXTRACT

Plans to build the world's largest shipping container garden on the banks of the Tyne have been submitted by Gateshead Council

Plans to build an urban garden and leisure destination out of shipping containers on the banks of the Tyne will be unveiled on Wednesday.

TV gardener Diarmuid Gavin is set to reveal ambitious plans to create a “majestic and unique” garden in the shadow of the iconic Tyne Bridge, on the Gateshead side of the river where the Tuxedo Princess and Royale once stood.

Plans for the scheme, which will be entirely privately funded, have been submitted to Gateshead Council .

They include open areas of trees, plants and a leisure destination housing shops, cafes, art exhibitions, catering units and start-up businesses made out of recycled shipping containers.

CGI video footage shows the containers built around a historic train, a nod the region’s rail heritage, with busy bars, restaurant stands and cafes built around a courtyard.

If planning permission is granted, the development will be finished by June 2018 to coincide with the start of the Great Exhibition of the North.

Sir Gary Verity, Great Exhibition of the North Chair, described the project as “ground-breaking”.

He said: “We’re looking forward to exploring how we can showcase great Northern art and culture, design and innovation through, and within the urban garden next summer.”

Gateshead Council’s planning committee will vote on the proposals next year.

Interesting concept, but I can't see letting tree's grow out of the Tyne bridge towers being welcome by the residents of Gateshead.

Looks like a good proposal, I'd guess the trees on the Tyne Bridge are a bit of artistic licence or may just be big planters in reality.

See how scrap of wasteland will be transformed to a Willy Wonka-style dream urban garden
Laura Hill 5 October 2017

This scrap of abandoned wasteland on the banks of the river Tyne may not look like much right now, but next summer it will be the place to be.

TV gardener Diarmuid Gavin revealed his ambitious plans to transform the area into an urban garden with shipping containers and bars, restaurants and art exhibitions.

If planning permission is granted the gardens will be in place under the Tyne Bridge from June next year for at least three years.

Diarmuid described the project as his “dream garden” and said that Tyneside was the perfect place for the project. He said he had been 100% set on a different location when he was shown the Hillgate Quay where the Tuxedo Princess and Royale boats used to be docked up. I was amazed that this place was available and hadn’t been snapped up,” he said. Just look at that view, it’s amazing and it is just iconic to be under the Tyne Bridge, a sight that is recognised all around the world.”

The dream garden project will be entirely privately funded and has been years in the making. “I had this idea about five-years-ago and have been looking for a location since,” Diarmuid said. The idea came from watching the Willy Wonka film when I was little, I want it to be as bright and as colourful as that.”

This looks great, and I'm really looking forward to seeing it. One of the most interesting parts, for me, is at around 1:21 on that video. Opening up and using the South Tyne Bridge Tower! I've always thought those spaces have bags of potential for an interesting use, but just assumed the cost and amount of work that would need doing to make them useable was prohibitive. I sincerely hope to be proved wrong!

They should do something with the Ovoline site on Pipewellgate on a more permanent basis. Someone on here has suggested it and I think it could be done. Quite a unique little area!

I agree tamedriver but due to oil site, I think it's too expensive to clean it up before to demolish the building and built whatever the new plan are.
