    I visited this place on a warm July evening, after noticing they had been levelling the waste ground next to the building I decided I would take a quick look. The club closed in 2006 shortly followed by the place being gutted, from what I can work out the place is to be turned into ''homes for the elderly'' with work starting shortly after my visit.

    The building dates back to the 17th century and has seen many uses over its life with it being covered to a nightclub in the 1970's.It consists of 3 main floors and a basement (flooded). The ground floor and 1st were used as the club with the top containing a flat and the office for the venue, some of the features still remain including the DJ booth on the ground floor and several ornamental mirrors.

    Originally this was a pot bank way back.
    Quite correct about it becoming an old peoples home type affair, they're retaining the existing building which will feature a bar called Sammy Bells in reference to the pottery company of Samuel Bell which manufactured Agate Ware on the site.

    Hi, great pictures! We are redeveloping the Maxims site thanks to a £1.8m grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund. The new site will consist of the Belong Newcastle care village and Belong Heritage Gallery which will be integrated within the village centre and will aim to link the past and present through shared memories, experiences and reminiscence.

    We are currently working with The New Vic Theatre to gather memories of Maxims which will culminate in a performance of the new play at the New Vic theatre, as well as the Belong Heritage Gallery early in 2018.

    It would be great if you have any more pictures from Maxims or are able to provide us with permission to share these on our social media site. Visit our any interesting memories or stories to share - follow our Facebook page, send me a message or email hello@belongheritagegallery.org.uk for more details!
