Jesmond - Sandyford House Regeneration

Sandyford House was a part of 1960's built The Scottish Life House Estate on the site of former residential area Archbold Terrace.

The estate contained a number of office blocks and a public house called The Royal Archer.

The whole complex was acquired by the developer Jomast in 2004 and the last business moved out of the estate around 2008 and Jomast began converting the blocks into flats and branded it Jesmond Three Sixty.

Work started in 2022 on converting Sandyford House and I will endeavour to chart the construction as best I can in the upcoming weeks.

At the rear of the Scottish Life House Estate was an old property known as Carlton Villas East, housing the Quaker Meeting House, which was demolished in 2018 to make way for a massive new tower block which hasn't yet begun. A few photos of the Quaker Meeting House feature here lower down this page.

Old Quaker Meeting House.

Surrounding villas were demolished by the 1970s but Cartlon Villas East still survived as part of Jesmond Quaker Meeting House.
The Friends moved to Jesmond in 1961 when their meeting house on Pilgrim Street was demolished to make way for the construction of the Swan House roundabout. The old Quaker Meeting House was demolished in 2018.

Photo is looking Northward. The 'narrow road' where the two men are walking is the former left hand side path of Victoria Square.

The cars are parked on what was once the Victoria Square green. The road running across the middle of the photograph is Sandyford Road. The large buildings in the background are the Royal Grammar School and Jesmond Parish Church which is on the corner of Jesmond Road (now the Central Motorway) and Eslington Road.
