On Saturday 2 June we launched our latest book - Uncovering Gateshead. 

Gateshead has lots of interesting oddities, old street signs, relics of a bygone industrial age and fascinating architectural features where you can imagine the builders of the day competing against each other. This new walking guide is designed to take you through the terraces, down the back lanes and discover some of Gateshead's hidden treasures. 

If you would like a copy of this book or any of the Society's other publications please email
