The Historic Environment Record incorporates a vast amount of information on a variety of 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 across Tyne and Wear.
Much of this information has been collated here in the Local Histories section. Why not have a look and see if we have featured your town or village. Maybe your village originates from a prehistoric settlement or grew during the Industrial Revolution?
