Shieldfield is a small area of
Newcastle upon Tynelocated just to the east of the City Centre, from which it is separated by the A167(M) Central Motorway. The Sandyford, Heaton, Bykerand Manorsareas of the city border Shieldfield to the North, East, South East and South.
English Civil War, King Charles I was permitted to play golf at Shieldfield whilst he was held prisoner at Newcastle by Parliamentarian forces.
The district largely consists of a council estate, with a few streets of Victorian terraced houses.
Over the last decade, developments have seen a number of Halls of Residence constructed to accommodate students from the nearby
Northumbria University, and in 2007 Northumbria University opened its new state of the art 'City Campus East' on the site of the former Warner Brothers cinema.
