FROM SEGEDUNUM TO THE SPANISH CITY
North Tyneside's heritage in words and pictures
Keith Armstrong & Peter Dixon
ISBN 1 871536 28 6
Northern Voices Community Projects, based in Whitley Bay and North Shields, has received significant financial backing from Awards for All and North Tyneside Council to publish this new book on the heritage of North Tyneside. The book looks at a broad range of local historic buildings in words and pictures.
It features poems, artwork and photographs by local people about these unique sites and the material submitted has been imaginatively selected by editor Keith Armstrong and designer Peter Dixon for the book, which also features a sequence of poems by Armstrong and many images by Dixon himself.
From Segedunum to the Spanish City, from St. Mary's Island to Tynemouth Priory, from Willington Mill to Burradon Tower, this is an atmospheric trawl through the vivid history of this fascinatingly diverse area of Tyneside.
