Grey Street in the heart of Newcastle upon Tyne, built by John Dobson and Richard Grainger in the 1830s, and renowned for its fine architecture. The composition is busy with pedestrian shoppers, carriages, and cavalry officers on horseback. The late German-born British scholar of architecture, Sir Nikolaus Bernhard Leon Pevsner, describes Grey Street as one of the finest streets in England; Sir John Betjeman said: "As for the curve of Grey Street, I shall never forget seeing it to perfection, traffic-less on a misty Sunday morning. Not even Regent Street, even old Regent Street London, can compare with that descending subtle curve."
Not in Abbey.
