A part of Newcastle just east of the city centre. The area is bounded by
New Bridge Street to the north and City Road to the south. The east and
west borders are less easy to define but as far as these photos are
concerned, the eastern extremity is St. Ann's Church and the western, The
Sallyport Tower on Tower Street.
The Battlefield is so
named, not because it is the site of some ancient conflict, but rather
because of it's fame in the 19th century as a venue for dog fights!
