About High Bridge Quarter

History

High Bridge (Note: there is no "Street" or "Road" in the name) this was literally where a bridge existed across a stream (the Lort Burn) which flowed down to the river Tyne. This was the high bridge as there was a bridge nearer the river which was aptly named "Low Bridge". The Stream was covered over many years ago and roughly followed the direction of Grey Street and Dean Street down to the river.
High Bridge is in two parts, either side of Grey Street. It features a variety of shops and offices along with the best in eating and drinking establishments.
