A fierce blaze broke out at the derelict Carville Hotel in the early hours of Friday the 30th of April 2010.
The pub near Wallsend Metro station dates back to 1893 and had been closed for around 6 months after losing its licence after police complained that it had become a magnet for serious crime and disorder in the town.
This is the only photo of mine, taken around 4 years ago, that I can find of the pub before the fire. I'm sure I have some more somewhere though and if I find them I will put them up on here.
