History of the Hill ................................... More Newcastle History By Timmonet.co.uk


Centuries ago Newcastle was a fortified town surrounded by city walls, some of the walls are still visible today and can be visited at any time. The Westgate area of Newcastle gained its name by being the Westgate of the City walls, in Roman times Hadrian built his wall through the city starting at Carlisle and ending at Wallsend. Again many parts of Hadrians wall can be seen in and around the city. The Westgate Road area of Newcastle has changed a lot over the years since Robert Stephenson resided here, some of it is now a conservation area, having some of the oldest buildings in Newcastle. This area of Newcastle has been used as
a location for many film and television productions, Catherine Cookson, Spender and Byker Grove to name but a few. Even by today's standards Westgate Road known as the Hill is a great place to be, it boasts a fantastic range of on and off road motorcycle shops, specialists in engineering, accessories and great places to eat. And only a few minutes away we have the Discovery Museum, Newcastle's Centre for life and our famous football ground St James's Park, home of Newcastle United. You can have a great day out, look at all of the bikes, have an educational tour, take in a bit of culture or wander into China town, have a meal and end a perfect day.

The people of the Hill are very proud to be part of probably the most unique street in the U.K.
