High Bridge Works
The High Bridge Works site has been home to pioneering artists, inventors & entrepreneurs since 1767. A cavernous hub of creativity, tucked behind a modest entrance on High Bridge, was built in 1903 on the footprint of Henry Watson’s original C18th High Bridge Works.
Originally a printing works, in 1995 Ward’s Building, as it was known, was taken over and run as an artist-led gallery and studios provider, Waygood. Following an ambitious £10m structural refurbishment, it reopened as BALTIC 39, a unique cultural hub in the city centre with gallery, studio, office and teaching space. This evolved to High Bridge Works in 2021.
