NEWBIGGIN BY THE SEA 1896 - NORTHUMBERLAND SHEET 65.10
These detailed maps normally cover an area of about one and a half miles by one mile. Each map includes an introduction and many include extracts of directories, local transport timetables and additional maps.
This detailed map covers the small Northumbrian fishing village and seaside resort of Newbiggin. "Every weekend people from surrounding mining villages walked or travelled by horse and trap or train to the village to enjoy a pleasant day by the sea", as Bill Harrison tells us in his introduction.
Features include the village centre with individual buildings neatly shown, railway station, St Bartholomew's church on the headland, Old Coble Inn, Old Ship Hotel, Queen's Head, lifeboat house, Woodhorn Demesne, etc.
On the reverse we include extracts from a contemporary trade directory plus Inch to the Mile sheet 10, revised 1902, which covers the village.
