History

Behind the facade lies a magical interior

In prehistoric times there were probably people living on or near the site of Milburn House.

Where the Castle now stands, plough marks were found in the subsoil when the Roman fort that lies beneath the castle was being investigated and a stone axe head was also recovered.

An excavation on High Bridge off Grey Street uncovered the site of a Bronze Age house dating frombetween 1500 and 800 BC, the oldest man-made thing so far found within the boundaries of the city. In the bed of a small stream beside the Black Gate a hollowed out wooden canoe from the Iron Age was found in Victorian times.

Later, when the Emperor Hadrian decided “to separate the Romans from the Barbarians” in AD 121, the wall that he planned was originally intended to end near where the Swing Bridge now stands, the lowest bridgingpoint on the river and the site of the Roman Bridge. In the event the wall was extended to Wallsend but the line it followed was just to the south of Milburn House, over the castle hill and on, following the route now used by Westgate Road leaving Milburn House outside the Roman Empire and firmly in the territory of the barbarians. It’s a worry.

It isn’t clear what happened on the site in Saxon times, though a Saxon cemetery has been excavated under the arches of the railway viaduct that passes so close to the Castle Keep, but what we know for certain about Newcastle began at Easter 1080 AD when Robert Curthose, William the Conqueror’s eldest son, built the first castle on top of the Roman Fort (and the Saxon cemetery – a clear symbol of who ruled the roost now).

From that start Newcastle expanded rapidly and by 1400 it was the 4th most important town in the kingdom. It was one of the shock troops of the Middle Ages – growing ever more powerful because of the independent and entrepreneurial spirit of its residents, because of its position on a tidal and easily navigable river and because of the increasing use and availability of coal.

The wealth was created on the river bank but increasingly the town spread up the hills to the north. St Nicholas was the centre of the town with an extensive market place in front of it (The Bigg and the Groat Market, Market Street). Newcastle’s other mediaeval parish churches of St John, St Andrew and All Saints were all in existence within 100 years of the creation of the town and are sufficiently far apart to give an indication of how big the town rapidly became.

The site of Milburn House was part of this town.
