On Wednesday 11th July, Y3 had a wonderful tour of Tynemouth and North Shields. As we arrived at Tynemouth metro station we looked at all the Victorian architecture of what was once the Tynemouth train station. The Victorians liked visiting the coast – just like us!
First, we visited Nothumberland Park (where the Tynemouth Abbey monks tended their gardens):
Then we took a walk down Tanner’s bank to North Shields fish quay to look at the Fiddler’s Green statue dedicated to all those fishermen who lost their lives at sea:
We then went along to Lord Admiral Collingwood’s monument. We had a great view of the Priory and Castle from there!
We had lunch by Tynemouth Priory before descending down to the beach.
We even had time to visit the Stuffed Dog and the traditional Sweet shop before heading home!
A huge thank you to all those who helped us along the way! We had a wonderful day and learned lots too!
