Settled from around AD120, when a bridge called Pons Aelius was built to cross the Tyne, Newcastle is so named due to the “new castle” which began construction in 1080 by Robert Curthose. The location proved ideal for the growth of industries such as shipbuilding and heavy engineering, although these gave way to the office and retail sectors in the second half of the 20th Century.
Although predominantly based around a metropolitan heart, places such as Jesmond Dene and Leazes Park offer residents the space to enjoy the outdoors, with walking routes along Hadrian’s Wall beginning at nearby Wallsend. Situated on the banks of the Tyne, Newcastle is also based on ground formed from carboniferous rock, with the Upper Pennine Coal Measures being located to the west of the city.
Richard Grainger, a local builder, developed the city extensively during the Victorian era, in particularly the area now known as Grainger Town undergoing an overhaul in a neo-classical style. The city’s Quayside also underwent an extensive regeneration programme to replace former shipping yards, leading to a rise in waterside apartments and flats, which now account for over 25% of the housing properties in Newcastle.
