Yes Steve that's the one! Ugly brute of a thing, why is it built the way it is?
I've found two furnished 1 bedroom flats that seem reasonably priced, but I'm not too sure about each area: First flat is located on 500 Westgate Road, Fenham, second one is located on Raby Street, Byker (near Byker Metro station).These are all generalisations; if you have somewhere more specific in mind post here.
Bit of a mystery that one and I suspect that it was at one time part of the Elswick Lead Works but cannot tie it down so perhaps others can have a 'stab'.Yes Steve that's the one! Ugly brute of a thing, why is it built the way it is?
This is a scan from the 1914 OS map which shows both the Cattle and Sheep Markets on Scotswood Road and Marlborough Crescent respectively. If you look to the top left of the Cattle Market you will see the Slaughter Houses.On that 1900 map : the cattle dock and cattle pens. Did they get slaughtered close by and chopped up for wholesale at the butchers that surrounded Marlborough Crescent?
Depends a little on what you re looking for; neither are part of the usual 'student' community. Westgate rd is more ethnically mixed, Byker more traditional 'working class' [both are I accept huge generalisations]. If it were me I d probably prefer Westgate - though I love much closer - within 5 mins of Byker.I've found two furnished 1 bedroom flats that seem reasonably priced, but I'm not too sure about each area: First flat is located on 500 Westgate Road, Fenham, second one is located on Raby Street, Byker (near Byker Metro station).
If you could stretch to about 450 then you could get something closer in the city centre. For 500 definitely [offset travel against extra cost ?].Around GBP 350-400 PCM without bills for a bedsit/1 bedroom (12 months contract) would be just fine. Any suggestion where I should look (instead)?
As she s a happy girl. You wouldn t know where the control centre is in Newcastle would you ? Don t worry we re not doing the Italian job.Nah, they're automatically controlled. As 'lighting up' time is legally enforced in the UK, street lighting is timed to switch on/off roughly in synch. Most modern street lights also have photoelectric control units, to switch them on if it gets unexpectedly dark due to weather conditions.
That will keep her 'well happy'. We can probably live without the address. Many thanksHmm, not sure. The Street Lighting PFI contact is held by Tay Valley Lighting Ltd (responsible for Newcastle and North Tyneside). You might be able to Google up an address....
Hint : very close to the oldest known home in Newcastle
Another hint : An original Medieval Newcastle Street, with links these days to Italy, India and Ancient Greece ?
Panis [also a restaurant recommend]
This could be a trick question^^
Steve what is the oldest home in Newcastle still standing?
