Newcastle East End (Newcastle United) (1884 - 1886)

HER Description

NEHL - This is Newcastle United's predecessors 3rd ground after Stanley Street and Dalton Street. Sadly, there are no maps of the exact time period East End played here, but 1890s maps show terraced housing in construction in 1895. As a result, it can be believed the ground was just south west of the current B&M store, nearby the likely Victorian wall and gates on the footpath. East End were only here for a short time until they moved to Heaton Junction, nr Chillingham Road. It is likely the site was compulsory purchased for housing development or already earmarked for it.
