This year John North combined forces with fellow City Guide Dee Pass, in order to accommodate more people onto his popular guided walks. This year’s topic was “Tyneside Flats to Tankerville” and included a variety of pieces of local history from the Jesmond Cinema through West Jesmond School to Newcastle High School for Girls and more. Less well-known corners were the house where Nancy Spain, the writer and media personality, lived, and the community garden established by enthusiasts from the United Reformed Church.
