Former Phillipson Memorial Orphanage, Newcastle upon Tyne, Tyne and Wear
The Phillipson Memorial Orphanage was built in 1873. It was designed by George T Redmayne and donated by Ralph Clark Phillipson. It was later used as a maternity hospital.

This building is an early example of the Domestic Revival or Queen Anne Revival style of architecture.
