Gateshead in 50 Buildings

Availability: In stock

Gateshead has often been portrayed as the ‘poor relative’ of its larger and more glamorous Tyneside neighbour Newcastle. But Gateshead has a long and proud industrial and social history, much of which has sadly gone, but in recent years there has been a revival in Gateshead's social and cultural infrastructure, which has placed it firmly on the tourist map. This extraordinary history is embodied in the rich Victorian architecture that has shaped the town.

Gateshead in 50 Buildings explores the town's history through a selection of its greatest architectural treasures. From the fairy-tale Saltwell Tower to the stunning new Millennium Bridge and Baltic Arts Centre, this unique study celebrates Gateshead's architectural heritage in a new and accessible way. Local author Rob Kirkup guides the reader on a tour of the town's historic buildings and modern architectural marvels.
