A history of the north east in 100 places

OK, this is cool. A nicely useful site documenting one hundred places in the north east of England that you might want to visit. Not just the usual suspects like the Angel of the North and the Tyne Bridges, but loads of familiar and less familiar places that have played a part in the area’s history. There’s bridges, museums, churches, monuments and more. Each one has a photograph (some are good enough record shots, some are really nice work), a brief description and a link to a map so you can find it. You can set up your own trail of places to visit, which is nice.

Worth a look, and I’ve got some ideas for places to go over the coming weeks and months.
