Extending in a north-westerly direction from Butcher Corner and leading into Newbiggin, Wheelgate has traditionally been a ‘shopping street’.  Notable exceptions being the Sun Inn, Crown Inn, Blacksmith’s Arms, Ship Inn and Cross Keys.  The latter has a medieval crypt, evidence of former times and earlier use.  Next to the Cross Keys once stood a chapel for the Primitive Methodists. Architecture suggests Georgian and Victorian origins. See the Gallery at the bottom of the page.
The new Post Office in Wheelgate opened on Monday 19 June 1911 'arrangements having been made to transfer the instruments from the old office in Yorkersgate tomorrow night' [1]
