[View of Newcastle upon Tyne & Newe House] The Seat of the Hon.ble Sr. Wm Blackett Bar.tt with part of the Town of Newcastle upon Tyne by Johannes Kip after Leonard Knyff (1709). Early 18th century folio antique copperplate print, 37.0 x 51.5cm, 14.5 x 20.25 inches; Please note that this is a folding print.

View of Newcastle upon Tyne & Newe House. A bird’s eye view of Newcastle-upon-Tyne and the Newe House from roughly the location of the old Odeon cinema looking west out over Pilgrim Street towards Westgate Hill on the horizon. The Newe House was an Elizabethan mansion built in 1580. King Charles I was held there under house arrest during the Civil War. The hay wain at bottom right has just entered the town through Pilgrim Street Gate in the bottom right corner (on the site of the modern junction with Northumberland Street and Blackett Street) and is passing what’s now the Tyneside Cinema. Further along the street, a train of loaded packhorses heading out of town would be passing the police station and the coach would be crossing Market Street. At the right of the picture, the town wall can be seen stretching from Pilgrim Street Gate to the New Gate and St Andrew’s Church in the distance. This section of the wall gave its alignment to the modern Blackett Street. The four horses in the field just outside the wall near the New Gate would today be galloping around Old Eldon Square, but the farm hands piling up the hay wain in the adjacent field would be lost under Boots and Waitrose in the shopping centre. St. James's Park is located behind the row of houses at the top of the field, in front of the windmills on the horizon. Pretty much everything in this view, town and country, was gone by the 1830s
