Shieldfield

Shieldfield is a small area of Newcastle upon Tyne located just to the east of the City Centre, from which it is separated by the A167(M) Central Motorway. The Sandyford, Heaton, Byker and Manors areas of the city border Shieldfield to the North, East, South East and South.

During the English Civil War, King Charles I was permitted to play golf at Shieldfield whilst he was held prisoner at Newcastle by Parliamentarian forces.

The district largely consists of a council estate, with a few streets of Victorian terraced houses.

Over the last decade, developments have seen a number of Halls of Residence constructed to accommodate students from the nearby Northumbria University, and in 2007 Northumbria University opened its new state of the art 'City Campus East' on the site of the former Warner Brothers cinema.

I'm looking for a photo of the Sheildfield Inn for my uncle who actually lived in the pub as a child

Sorry, can't help you there mate.
I have only photos of all the rest of the pubs for some reason. Maybe it was knocked down before I started photographing the place.

Maybe a reader may be able to help you out.
