Ouseburn - Old Maynards Sweet Factory

The former Maynards toffee factory in the Lower Steenbergs Yard is the centrepiece of plans by Newcastle City Council to offer targeted office space to graphic designers, software engineers and architects.

I thought it would be a good time to grab a few photos of the place before anything happened to the site.

Every time you post photos like this it makes me wonder why I've not been to inspect these things myself, given that I only live a few minutes away from Ouseburn! I'm relatively new to Newcastle so it's always interesting reading about it's history.

The Ouseburn area is such an interesting place to wander around as there's all kinds of things going on.
