Hebrew Congregational Synagogue, 180 Bewick Road, Gateshead - pictures 29/12/19

My last posted pictures on this project were those taken 6 months ago, on post #16 this new thread, (Religious Buildings thread, post #1369) as Alf has being doing a wonderful job of covering the progress with his weekly reports

On a planned multi project route for progress photographs made a short detour on Bank Holiday Monday 27/06/18 and took these pictures at approx 1000 when walking along Rectory Rd to show situation with works being carried out by Meldrum Construction on Hebrew Congregational Synagogue, 180 Bewick Road, Gateshead

Surprised to see work being carried out on a Bank Holiday - but they do have the restriction of not working Saturdays

On a planned multi project route for progress photographs made a short detour on Sunday 29/12/19 and at approx 1145 took these pictures at when walking north along Rectory Rd to show situation with works being carried out by Meldrum Construction on Hebrew Congregational Synagogue, 180 Bewick Road, Gateshead

With no leaves of trees a fairly decent view of the existing building

I was quite surprised to see work starting again on the east elevation of the Synagogue. Towards the north end they have removed brickwork to make a large opening. At the south end the work is obscured by the curtain on the scaffolding but similar noises have been coming from behind it.

There is not much to report this Sabbath but they have erected scaffolding around the two structures above roof level:

I was told by an elder that the structures would allow them to carry out wedding ceremonies there instead of having to erect a chuppa in the car park in Ravenscourt Place every time someone got married as they do now:

Sorry if this is a bit off-topic but while doing a bit of research on this synagogue I ended up looking up synagogues in Newcastle/Gateshead on Google Maps and they all had horrible reviews :( Disappointing.

There is a very long list of Synagogues in our Forum INDEX, under "J" for 'Jewish issues'.

Just to let you know that I haven't abandoned the Synagogue but there has been no external work done since my last post on 2nd February but there is lots of work going on inside:

Taking my daily exercise allowance I passed the Synagogue as I do every day and spotted a bit of activity on the site this morning. For the last couple of weeks they have been bringing a large crane on site to load what looks like ducting equipment to the roof area. I have always caught them on a break until today:

When I passed the Synagogue this morning they were beginning to dismantle the scaffolding from the east elevation. As it is only two minutes from my house I went down after the workmen had clocked off to see what progress had been made:

It's been a long time since there was any change to the exterior but today they have removed part of the scaffolding from the roof area:
