North Shields and Tynemouth, historically united, lie on the north bank of the River Tyne. North Shields grew up as a fishing port serving the Priory of Tynemouth on the headland. As other industries moved into North Shields, particularly ship-building, the town expanded from its site along the river bank to accommodate the workers, absorbing villages nearby. Latterly, much of the town including its historic quayside area has been regenerated. Nearby Tynemouth remained smaller and today attracts many visitors to its beaches and historical landmarks, particularly the Castle and Priory.In North Shields and Tynemouth Pubs, author Eileen Burnett takes the reader on a fascinating journey through the towns'' watering holes, including both North Shields and Tynemouth. Many of the pubs have retained features and traditions of previous ages, and she reveals the variety of North Shields'' and Tynemouth''s pubs including the characters that have frequented or run the public houses over the years. Brimming with quirky tales and fascinating facts, this carefully crafted guide initiates readers into the fascinating history of North Shields'' and Tynemouth''s pubs.
Eileen Burnett is a local historian who lives in Tyneside and has written several books on the area, including the history of pubs.
