Local Histories

The Historic Environment Record includes a vast amount of information in it, on a number of varying sites from Hadrian’s Wall to Hylton Castle. Much of this information also concerns the histories of many of the small towns and villages located all over Tyne and Wear.

SiteLines has collated much of this information to provide our ‘Local Histories’ page. Why not have a look and see if we have featured your town or village by clicking on the letters above. Maybe your village originates from a prehistoric settlement or grew during the Industrial Revolution. Click on to your town or village to find out more.
