  Mr Monkey in Newcastle

"They're rather fine streets"

In the early nineteenth century, a chap called Grainger rebuilt large chunks of Newcastle, replacing little medieval streets with some brand new, wide thoroughfares. Grey Street and Grainger Street are two of the most important streets in this area, so Mr Monkey went to investigate them. Grainger didn't put the Metro there, though, and the white bags of rubbish from New Year's Eve aren't his fault, either. Or Mr Monkey's.

Someone's written about Grainger Town at the IgoUgo Travel Community website.
