Extant Building

The Ship Inn is a popular and attractive traditional working class pub located in the heart of the Ouseburn, lying beneath Byker Bridge. In the past it was popular with the local abattoir workers. The building was originally part of a terrace in Stepney Bank which was destroyed during the 1930s. It has been designed relatively simply. It has two storeys and an attic above with two dormers. The ground floor has large windows with painted stone lintels and sills. The faƧade is brick and the west side has been rendered white. Also on the side is a single storey modern garage extension.
