Taken about a month ago, from the bridge between platforms 2 and 3.  Looking towards the Castle Keep, which is unfortunately out of shot.

Newcastle Central is a Grade I listed building that was designed by John Dobson in 1850.  The opening ceremony was attended by Queen Victoria.  The roof has three curved, arched spans and the design inspired the ‘house style’ for subsequent GNER main stations.  (Incidentally, anyone interested in the buildings of Newcastle generally will find the John Dobson link interesting.)
