Product Information

This book offers a lively and authoritative survey of the buildings of Tyneside, from the medieval castle and cathedral at Newcastle to the spectacular buildings spearheading the renaissance of Gateshead on the river's south bank. Both urban centres are explored in a series of walks, including the magnificent 1830s replanning of Newcastle, comparable in quality and ambition to anything in Georgian Edinburgh or Bath. The famous Tyne bridges also receive detailed treatment, with other historic engineering structures from this consistently rewarding and surprising area. A selection of suburban walks is included, together with excursions to Anglo-Saxon Jarrow, medieval Tynemouth, and the celebrated Angel of the North. The book is illustrated throughout with specially commissioned photographs, maps, and historic views. Written by Gracie McCombie, ISBN 9780300126648 Published by Yale 2009.
