Review: Last Days of the Raj, Dinnington, Newcastle

Review: Last Days of the Raj, Dinnington, Newcastle
19:00, 21 April 2015 By Gordon Barr


The Last Days of the Raj in Dinnington

When The Last Days of the Raj closed its doors for the final time in Low Fell, Gateshead in 2012, the North East lost one of its most famous and popular Indian restaurants.

It was always a favourite destination for me and the multiple awards it won over the years –both regional and national – proved how good an eatery it was. But all is not lost. For the Last Days has been re-born, not in Gateshead but across the river in Dinnington, in the former Bay Horse pub building. Athair Khan has now passed on his expertise to son Imran who is heading up the new incarnation of the restaurant, but the night we were there, dad was very much holding the fort and it was good to see him still so hands-on.

The food itself is exquisite and we made sure we enjoyed as much of it as we could, starting off with the dall soup (£3.50). This was superb, the lentils blended into a dish that was subtle yet wholly appetising and just the right texture. As well as enjoying the usual assortments of popadoms and pickles, we also had `second’ starters of the platters for two. The vegetarian option (£8.95) included onion bhaji, vegetable samosa, vegetable pakora and paneer tikka, the latter proving the biggest hit for the two veggies.

A truly wonderful evening was had by all – incredible food, top-notch service and staff and a lovely relaxed atmosphere. We may have had to wait a few years for The Last Days of the Raj to be reborn, but I am just glad when it closed in Low Fell it was not its last days after all!

Woolsington Woods campaigners march against plans to develop hotel and homes

Greenbelt campaigners say Woolsington Hall transformation will set a 'dangerous precedent'
16:00, 30 January 2015 By Rachel Wearmouth



Greenbelt campaigners say a five-star hotel planned by Sir John Hall’s business venture is a threat to the countryside.

Cameron Hall Developments wants to transform Woolsington Hall into a luxury hotel complete with golf course, restaurant, spa and cookery school, but campaigners say it will encroach on greenbelt land. The plans include 72 executive homes and 238 parking spaces but the Save Gosforth Wildlife group say if Newcastle City Council gives the plans the go-ahead it will set a “dangerous precedent” for building on greenbelt land.

They say the ambitious development is unnecessary as there are two other hotels close to Newcastle International Airport.

John Urquhart, from the Save Gosforth Wildlife campaign, said: “This involves the destruction of mature woodland to accommodate 72 executive homes and 238 parking spaces; the formation of an eighteen-hole golf course; and the revamping of Woolsington Hall as a luxury ‘boutique’ hotel. “Not only is there a major threat to wildlife, but also this area contains the Ouseburn and five tributaries, and tarmacing over such a large area will inevitably increase flash flooding further downstream in the Gosforth area. If this development goes ahead, it creates a dangerous precedent for an attack on all of Newcastle’s green belt, including the land next to Gosforth Nature Reserve, which we have spent three years fighting to protect.”

But when the plans, which have the backing of Woolsington Parish Council, were submitted chief executive Paul Mackings said: “Newcastle is one of the few major cities in the UK which lacks a five-star hotel which this development will provide.

Woolsington Woods campaigners march against plans to develop hotel and homes
19:30, 4 May 2015 By Keiran Southern


Woolsingham residents and support groups protesting against the building of a executive estate near Woolsington woods

Greenbelt campaigners held a protest walk against plans to build on woodland.

A proposal to transform the Grade II listed Woolsington Hall into a five-star hotel and build 72 executive homes and a golf course have been submitted for the area of Woolsington Woods, near Newcastle Airport.

But on Monday campaigners against the plans - some dressed as badgers - marched to show their disapproval.

John Urquhart, from Save Gosforth Wildlife Campaign, said: “We’re protesting because over the past 20 years Newcastle has lost 25% of its greenbelt land and this is another attack which will lose another 3%.
“It’s totally unnecessary because there’s plenty of places that still have not been built on, brown field sites. It’s a destructive attempt to destroy 230 acres of wet land when clearly the great need in Newcastle is for affordable homes in the centre of of the city on brownfield sites.”

The business venture, by former Newcastle United chairman Sir John Hall’s Cameron Hall Developments, also proposes 238 parking spaces to be built alongside the boutique hotel and luxury homes. Woolsington Parish Council want the development to go ahead.

Privileged people living in a privileged cocoon who are just basically nimbies..a five star hotel, a golf course and an executive housing development will bring much needed revenue for the city coffers and a policy of replacing any trees at a 2for 1 rate seems fair enough to me.A prestigious development that may just help to lure investment into the region. cheers

Woolsington green campaigners fear planners will have 'wool pulled over eyes' over luxury hotel development

Woolsington green campaigners fear planners will have 'wool pulled over eyes' over luxury hotel development
08:30, 17 June 2015 By Kate Proctor


Woolsington Hall

Councillors risk having ‘the wool pulled over their eyes’ unless they have access to ex-Newcastle United chairman Sir John Hall’s financial plan for a historic hall, it has been claimed.

Campaigners are stepping up their fight against the development of the Grade II listed Woolsington Hall in Newcastle into a luxury hotel, golf course and up to 70 homes before it goes before Newcastle City Council planning committee later this month. They want to see details of the financial case put forward by Sir John Hall’s company Cameron Hall Developments which they say outlines that the site is only financially viable if houses can be built on several acres of woodland.

John Urquhart of the group Save Gosforth Wildlife, and the newly-formed Save Newcastle Wildlife, said the two groups will write to MP for Newcastle North, Catherine McKinnell, asking her to pressure the local authority into making any financial reasoning given by the developer public.

Mr Urquhart said: “The developer is using the argument that it’s commercially sensitive so that we can’t see their sums. The planning committee are having the wool pulled over their eyes. This is an economic case and a judgement can’t be made on harm and risk unless we are in full possession of the facts. The key factor is value of the land, and nobody has had a really good look at this and it’s creating a precedent. He’s concerned that woodland could be lost again in other cases where a developer has said it’s needed out of financial necessity to make a project viable. He said he wants to see spreadsheets and detailed accounting from Cameron Hall, however local authorities do not make the financial specifics of a development public during the planning process.

Mr Urquhart also wants to make sure the council considers a 7500 strong petition against the development which was carried out through website www.change.org . However the council have said that petition does not follow local authority rules and won’t be accepted.

Woolsington Hall decision LIVE: Updates as planners decide on £23m development
09:29, 17 July 2015 By Michael Brown , Kathryn Riddell



Newcastle City Council planners will decide on the future of Woolsington Hall and tower block plans at Lower Steenberg’s Yard in the Ouseburn Valley. Greenbelt campaigners will on Friday find out whether controversial £23m plans to turn Woolsington Hall into a hotel are given the go ahead.

Ex-Newcastle United chairman Sir John Hall’s property firm Cameron Hall wants to convert the 17th century home and gardens north west of Newcastle into five-star accommodation with 72 large houses in the grounds, a spa, cookery school and 18-hole golf-course.

But environmentalists, including members of the Save Gosforth Wildlife group, and even Newcastle City Council’s own ecologist say the potential loss of green space is “too high a price to pay.”

The Chronicle’s Michael Brown is reporting live from Newcastle City Council’s Civic Centre, where planners will decide on the proposals - and on an application to build a “glowing” tower block at Lower Steenberg’s Yard in the heart of the Ouseburn Valley.

Edit - as at 12.04 the Chronicle is reporting - Application granted 8 for and 4 against. Decision will now be referred to the Secretary of State as departure from greenbelt policy

Woolsington Hall developer reveals academy plan to create 'hothouse for leaders of tomorrow'

Woolsington Hall developer reveals academy plan to create 'hothouse for leaders of tomorrow'
13:30, 22 July 2015 By Michael Brown



Woolsington Hall developers have promised to create a “hothouse for the leaders of tomorrow” after being given the green light for their controversial multi-million pound plans.

Despite widespread opposition - including a near 9,000 signature petition - Newcastle City Council’s planning committee approved a proposal that will see the grade II listed, 17th century estate turned into the city’s first five star hotel, with an 18 hole golf course, spa, restaurant, tea room, cookery school and 72 houses.

And the chief executive of developer Cameron Hall, Paul Mackings, said the plans will pump £9m a year into the economy, with 165 jobs created around the business.

He also promised that it would help boost the skills of young people in the region, revealing plans for a hotel academy to create a conveyor belt of emerging hospitality talent. We’re working very closely with Newcastle College to create a hotel academy. It will be similar to the aviation academy they have at the airport. It will offer training in hospitality and spa services, with advanced qualifications for students, and apprenticeships. It will be a hothouse for the leaders of tomorrow - and nothing looks better on a CV than five-star experience.

Following the plan’s approval - subject to sign off by the secretary of state - Mr Mackings said he hoped that the first phase of the development, including the hotel, restaurant and training academy, could be completed by summer 2017.

According to the Save Newcastle Wildlife group on facebook/twitter the front door to Woolsington Hall has been left open for quite some time. I'm sure Cameron Hall would hate for any accident to befall the Grade 2* listed at risk building in their ownership...

On This Day In History - 14th December 1799

John Sykes gives this report in his Local Records for this day in history, 14th December 1799:

Early on the morning, a fellow contrived to break through a window into the kitchen at Woolsington, near Newcastle, the seat of Matthew Bell, esq., where a young chimney-sweeper, who had not finished his work the day before, was lying under a table; after having warmed himself at the fire, the fellow proceeded up the stairs, when the young gentleman of the black robe ventured out of his covert, and, by ringing a bell, alarmed the family, but the fellow made his escape; the boy, however, gave so accurate a description of this person and dress, that he was taken soon after in company with two women (one of whom pretended to be a fortune teller), and taken before the Magistrates in Newcastle, where the boy was called upon to identify him among a number of other men, which he readily did, and he was= consequently committed to prison.

At the Assizes for Northumberland the following year, John M'Kenan, for breaking into the house of Matthew Bell, esq., of Woolsington, was found guilty and condemned, but afterwards reprieved.

Firefighters were today still at Newcastle’s Woolsington Hall after a fire broke out at the Grade ll-listed building on Tuesday night.

At its height seven appliances attended the fire at the country house which sits in a 92-acre estate in Woolsington village and has been on English Heritage’s “at risk” register since 2002.

At 9.20pm on Tuesday, Tyne & Wear Fire and Rescue Service reported it was dealing with a large fire and had several pumps in attendance. A spokesman later said: “We are dealing with quite a substantial fire in Woolsington Hall

It's refreshing that in the festive season provision can be made to ensure that the naughty tramps have somewhere to gainfully occupy themselves and stay warm...I'd noticed that the centre of the city has been relatively smoke free recently.

Woolsington Hall fire: Owners Cameron Hall were due to start development of luxury hotel complex

Woolsington Hall fire: Owners Cameron Hall were due to start development of luxury hotel complex
31 Dec 2015 By Sonia Sharma

The owners of Woolsington Hall have spoken of their devastation after a fire broke out at the historic building - and revealed multi-million pound renovation works were just weeks away.

The three-storey grade-II listed country house went up in flames at around 8.30pm on Tuesday and more than 30 firefighters battled to put out the blaze in high winds. The main hall was severely damaged, with its interiors and roof destroyed.

The property, which was placed on English Heritage’s ‘at risk’ register in 2002, was to be developed into a five-star hotel, with executive homes, spa and golf course. Developers Cameron Hall, who bought the site in 1994, were given planning permission for the scheme by Newcastle City Council in July and work was due to start in the New Year.

Speaking after the fire, Paul Mackings, chief executive of Cameron Hall Developments, said: “We are absolutely devastated. I got a phone call at around 9.15pm on Tuesday saying there was a fire at the site and I went down there straight away. By then, it was well under way. The winds were very strong, there were gusts of around 65mph to 70mph, and the building literally went up in flames. The firefighters were fantastic and did all they could. But there was substantial damage to the main hall. The roof had come in. I was standing there watching it and I couldn’t believe it. In the summer we were given planning permission by the council for our scheme and we recently got the go-ahead from the Secretary of State. We were planning to start work in the New Year. But this fire has left us devastated. I have spent six years of my life pulling all this together. I still can’t believe it.”

The cause of the blaze is not known at this stage and the police and fire brigade have launched an investigation into the incident. Mr Mackings added: “We don’t know what caused the fire as yet. There was nothing combustible inside, and the place was boarded up and secure. We are now just trying to work with engineers and architects to see what elements can be saved.”

Woolsington Hall fire: Search for arsonists who caused 'millions of pounds of damage'



From Chronicle Live website on 15/01/16

The dramatic blaze at the grade II-listed property on the outskirts of Newcastle was started deliberately, police have said


Fire crews damp down Woolsington Hall after it was damaged by fire.

The search for firestarters who caused millions of pounds of damage to a historic stately home has been stepped up.

Police have appealed for help to find the arsonists who they believe set a number of fires inside the grade II-listed building on the outskirts of Newcastle , which left it completely destroyed.

Insp Julie Rana, of Northumbria Police, is now asking the public to think back to the evening of December 29, when the blaze broke out, and get in touch if they saw any suspicious people or vehicles in the area. She also revealed the staggering cost of the damage.

Insp Rana said: “We are appealing for anyone who might have seen any suspicious people or vehicles in the areas around Woolsington Hall on that Tuesday evening.

“Whoever has done this has caused millions of pounds worth of damage and has completely destroyed the building. We are carrying out enquiries and would be interested in hearing from anyone who has any information that could help us.”

The fire at three-storey Woolsington Hall, in Woolsington village, is thought to have been started sometime between 6pm and 8pm four days after Christmas.

It took more than 30 firefighters to battle the blaze in high winds, and crews were still there the next day dampening down.

The property, which was placed on English Heritage’s ‘at risk’ register in 2002, was due to be developed into a five-star hotel, with executive homes, spa and golf course also on the site.
