The Old Collingwood Hotel - Dunston
A very popular pub in the twenties when the Manager was Joe Batey, it was situated not far from the Royal Hotel. The pub and all the property around it were demolished in the thirties and forties. A block of flats now stands on the site.
The pub was rebuilt as The New Collingwood further up Dunston Road.
The old Collingwood was down beside the Royal Hotel. It was knocked down and a new Collingwood built and opened further up Dunston Road, the old one was not rebuilt where it stood, it is now a block of flats.
