North Shields, England


Old High Light, North Shields

This evening, I am posting images and information on North Shields in N.E. England, about eight miles east of Newcastle upon Tyne.

This town (pop 40,000) is located on the north bank of the River Tyne. On the opposite bank is South Shields which is connected to Hadrian’s Wall via the Arbeia Roman Fort.

North Shields has a long history in fishing and navigation. The tall white buildings shown in the images were lighthouses which date from the 17th and 18th centuries.
