Tyne and Wear HER(1522): Newcastle town wall, curtain west of Stank Tower - Details
Newcastle town wall, curtain west of Stank Tower
There are said to have been two turrets on this stretch of curtain between Stank Tower and Gunner Tower. It was presumably cleared away in c. 1847 (the same time as Stank Tower) for the making of Neville Street.
