Westgate House

Westgate House dates from 1966. The building was designed by renowned local architects Reavell and Cahill, and it was the last in a series of projects by the council and other bodies to replace housing that had been declared unfit a full century earlier (following the Cholera outbreak). So the building has an important place in the story of 20th century Alnwick. It dates from a period when social housing was built to high standards, and it is now home to several dozen households.
