North of England Institute of Mining and Mechanical Engineering


The North of England Institute of Mining and Mechanical Engineers (NEIMME) on Westgate Road, Newcastle, is a British organisation dedicated to the research and preservation of knowledge relating to mining and mechanical engineering. Founded in 1852, the institute, in Newcastle upon Tyne, possesses one of the largest collections of such mining information in the world. It's library, named after its founder Nicholas Wood contains more than twenty thousand volumes of technical literature, in the fields of mining, geology, mechanical engineering, government blue books, mine rescue, mineralogy, mineral chemistry, mining statistics, mining law, seismology and other related topics.

I found it quite difficult to photograph as most of these old buildings are. I hope these photos do it justice.
I will also add some external photos sometime soon when I'm next in the area.
