Description

Village guides are a unique new series of guides designed for the iPhone and iPad. They allow both the casual visitor and the long-time resident to have a fascinating insight into the past by telling the story of villages through text, audio and superb archive photographs. Set in the North-East of England, they bring the region’s particular mix of industrial and medieval past to light in a way that traditional guidebooks cannot match. They also have very useful information for the visitor such as listing where to park or finding out where the nearest cash-point is. Plus you can also find out somewhere great to eat. This village guide covers Amble, describing over forty fascinating buildings or sites to go and look at. It has over a hundred and forty photographs and illustrations, many of which are archive prints that are seldom seen and the story behind each site is available in forty unique recordings to listen to and enjoy as you walk around and explore. • Identify where Amble’s first pub stood that may have been a smugglers haven. • Find out Amble’s Manor House. • Unearth the mysterious medieval well that still exists behind the High Street. • See where the gates of an ancient hall are still standing. • Hear about how Amble developed as a Coal Shipping port. • Find out the fascinating story how the Waterloo Pub got its name. • Discover Britain’s first “Utility” Cinema. • Learn about Prisoner of War Camp 635. • Explore what is left of the Coal Staithes that cut through Amble. • Uncover what lies underneath the Paddling Pool. • Read about the hidden stories behind the names on the Memorial Clock Tower. I hope that you enjoy it and that it encourages you to try out other village guides in the series, such as Ellington, Longhirs or Cresswell.
