AMBLE HIGH STREET
NU 2604
(North side)
Ruined walls to east of
13/49
Roman Catholic Church of
Sacred Heart and St Cuthbert
1.6.49 (formerly listed as Hall
Bank (remains)
II

Fragment of former Manor House, C15. Squared stone with cut dressings.
4-metres-long and 2-metres-high length of wall, 1 metre thick, containing
a window of two trefoil-headed lights with uncusped panels above.
The Manor belonged to Tynemouth Priory and may have functioned as a monastic
cell. From foundations exposed when the previous Catholic Chapel was built
in 1897 it would seem that the remaining wall formed part of a service wing
adjoining a hall to the west.

T.L. McAndrews, 'Amble and District' (1912) plate facing p.30.
