Author: Ken Hutchinson

Newcastle upon Tyne is one of England’s great cities and one of the most historically significant, with a proud heritage dating all the way back to Roman times. The city grew as an important centre for the wool trade in the fourteenth century and later became a major coal mining area. However, it was the famous River Tyne that brought real wealth and prestige to the city with the development of shipbuilding and ship repair works. Today the city is better known for its renowned university, famous football club and iconic bridges.

Much of this rich and vibrant port city is still in evidence today. Local author Ken Hutchinson takes the reader on their very own A–Z tour around the city’s history, exploring the nooks and crannies and relating many a fascinating tale of interesting people and places along the way. This fully illustrated A–Z guide to the city will appeal to residents and visitors alike.
