Newcastle upon Tyne Jewish Community

City of Newcastle upon Tyne

Newcastle upon Tyne, with a population of about 260,000 is the principal city of North East of England, lying on north bank of the river Tyne a few miles inland from the North Sea coast.  The present boundaries date from 1974, when the metropolitan borough of Newcastle upon Tyne was formed, within the then new metropolitan county of Tyne and Wear.  Newcastle became a unitary authority in 1986 when Tyne and Wear lost its administrative status, becoming purely a ceremonial county.  Until 1974, Newcastle was a county borough and part of the county of Northumberland.
