Ridley Place

Ridley Place was built up c1810 when the area was a suburb of the medieval town. It runs east to west from Northumberland Street through to John Dobson Street.

The street is currently undergoing a series of works to, according to Newcastle City Council, serve as a space for new businesses and independent shops, cafes and bars, with a unique culture and spirit that will create a new destination for those in the city. Works are expected to complete by Spring 2023, with the installation of new street furniture being the final part of the improvement work.

New Street Furniture.

I hope they plan to put back the original paving under the yellow things. The Tarmac looks terrible.
