Description

Out now – one of the biggest Villageguides in the series, packed with fascinating stories and archive photos of everything that is interesting in Blyth. Village guides are a unique new series of guides designed for the iPhone and iPads. 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 guide books 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 Blyth, describing thirty-five fascinating buildings or sites to go and look at. It has over one hundred and seventy-five photographs and illustrations, many of which are archive photos that are seldom seen and the story behind each site is available thirty-five unique recordings to listen to and enjoy as you walk around and explore. • Learn about Blyth’s earliest history and and possible Roman connections. • Unearth where the earliest fishing village used to be. • Discover what made Blyth big and successful. • Trace the path of the first Waggonways. • Uncover the stories behind the towns oldest buildings. • Find out what went on in No.11 Bath Terrace. • Explore buildings such as the Methodist Central Hall, the Railway Station and the Central Cinema, all of which have come and are now gone. • Hear about Blyth’s connection with Laural and Hardy, or more recently Ant and Dec. • Rediscover the architectural jewels of Blyth that still exist such as the Blyth Harbour Commissioners Offices, the Post Office and the Bonded Warehouse. I hope that you enjoy it and that it encourages you to try out other village guides in the series, such as Lynemouth, Cresswell or Newbiggin-by-the Sea.
