We have had a fantastic day on the Quayside to with Richard (‘That History Bloke’) where we found out even more about The Great Fire of Newcastle and Gateshead. We went to the place where the fire started and walked across the Swing bridge to where the fire spread over into Newcastle. We even got to go to Bessie Surtees house and St Mary’s heritage centre where we found out even more about the fire.
