This book is a guide to oer sixty remarkable and curious sights to be found on Tyneside, spanning centuries of history from Roman times right up the present day - for example, Newcastle's oldest chapel, the last surviving purpose-built newsreel cinema in the country, a 'manic rabbit', Marsden's white horse, a Chinese arch and a disappearing graveyard. Some of the featured items reflect the area's impressive industrial heritage, such as the Baltic Flour Mills, while others have been at the firefront of Tyneside's cultural regeneration, including Sage and the Millennium Bridge. There are numerous illustrations, together with location and access details for each site, allowing readers to discover an immense variety of history, humanity and architecture for themselves. Curiosities of Tyneside will make fascinating reading for residents and visitors alike.
