Disappointing and sad news in the Evening Chronicle on 24/10 that The Cooperage a Grade 2 listed building on the Quayside could be lost forever.
This historical building dates back to the 15th century and is one of the few remaining buildings left on the Quayside that escaped the great fire of Newcastle Quayside in 1854.
The pub closed it's doors in 2009 and was bought by Manners Ltd a company linked to the Apartment Group who own bars in Newcastle such as As You Like it, Floritas, Holy Hobo, House of Smith, Madame Koo and Nancy's Bordello.
It is disappointing to hear that Manners Ltd/The Apartment Group have let this historical pub get into a state of disrepair and have elected to leave it to rot so it can be demolished.
It is hard to believe that such an important historical Newcastle building could be treat in this way and it must be saved at all costs!!!.
A Change.org petition has been raised by Phil Clarke in an attempt to get enough support to save this impressive at risk medieval timber framed building as a lasting reminder of the history of Newcastle upon Tyne.
Pubs Newcastle would welcome support from it's visitors by signing the petition - Click here to access the Change.org petition.
