The Green, Gateshead

The Green at the junction of the A19 to the main Gateshead road is one of Sir John Fitzgerald Limited – Public Houses – “The Dixilanders” original night club and public house stood on the site for many years before the site was purchased by Sir John Fitzgerald Limited and the building demolished to provide a site for The Green.

The whole of the building stands on over 2m of infill which was brought in to cover the entire site and to allow the building to be raised 2m above the original level to provide views over the adjacent golf course – the building design was based on a house in South Africa built for a professional golfer.
