Structure


The Newcastle Coke and Tar Works (HER ref. 1651) have been demolished and the site cleared, and no structural evidence of the industry remains other than an old service tunnel. The tunnel probably dates from the opening of the works in the early years of the 20th century when it became one of the most important industries in the area..
