HER Description

NEHL - The Royal Hotel hosted its own rifle range between the Bigg Market and St. John Street (presumably through the walkway between them adjoining the Royal Hotel). A piece from the Chronicle in 1906 states "This fine equipped range is open from 10am till 11pm". The manager was late Sergt-Inst. J. Rae.

Thanks to Steve Ellwood (@TyneSnapper) for the info.
