Located in Gateshead, in the North East of England Trinity Street car park was opened in 1967. Part of the Trinity Street shopping complex, the concrete structure which dominated the Gateshead skyline, had a prominent role in the 1971 filem ‘Get Carter’ staring Michael Caine. The ‘rooftop cafe’ never found a tenant and never opened.
