Event description

Description

“Elswick Hall will one day be the centre of Newcastle.”

Did you know that Elswick Park used to be the home of Richard Grainger? His house stood where the swimming pool is today.
Join us to hear about Richard Grainger and his grand plan for turning Elswick into a new town that would become the centre of Newcastle - and what went wrong.

This event is organised by St James Heritage & Environment Group with support from the Heritage Lottery Fund. There is no need to book a place - just pop into Cruddas Park Library!
