Scottish Siege of Newcastle

Town Walls – Jesmond Subway Mosaics

The Scots laid siege to the city of Newcastle-on-Tyne from 3 February, when the town was formally asked to surrender, until 19 October, the same year, when the Scots took the city by storm. Tynemouth fell on 27 October 1644 and the Scots were then able to control the Tyneside coal trade for a second time.
