Newcastle upon Tyne in Northumberland, England, United Kingdom
For many years the House of Recovery stood in the grounds of what became Rutherford College. This educational establishment began life as Bath Lane School and was founded by Dr. Rutherford in 1870. It was demolished in 1987.
Bath Lane takes its name
On the west side of the modern day Bath Lane stands the former Co-operative Wholesale Society Printing Works. Easily identifiable by its tower and domed roof it was constructed in 1890 to the flamboyant design of Frank West Rich, who was also responsible for Turnbull's Warehouse standing above The Close, and the even more ostentatious Ouseburn School in Byker.
