Sandyford

Sandyford is a largely student dominated area of Newcastle-Upon-Tyne due to its close proximity to the two Universities in the city, Newcastle University and Northumbria University.

Sandyford is home to FPP Brand Communications - the European award winning communications agency, and several local commodities, such as; a 'Spar' shop, an Italian bistro, an Italian restaurant, an Italian sandwich shop. There is a futher two other sandwich shops, an award winning fish'n'chip shop, a Chinese takeaway, a [post office] and a car garage. It's similar to both Heaton and Jesmond in terms of street layout and architecture.

Deuchar House(Sandyford Brewery)


Built as a bonded warehouse for the company Sandyford Brewery, Deuchar House is constructed from sandstone ashlar and follows the curve of Sandyford Road.
John Arnison Simson operated the Sandyford Brewery prior to 1887 when it was acquired by Robert Deuchar Ltd. The Sandyford Brewery was then sold to Newcastle Breweries in 1941. Brewing ceased in 1961, although the maltings continued to be used until about 1970.


In 1984 the warehouse converted into apartments.
