The Tyne

Newcastle is the main city in the north - east of England, the River Tyne itself passes through a gorge between Newcastle (on the north bank) and Gateshead (south of the river), famous for a series of dramatic and notable bridges such as the Tyne Bridge, High Level Bridge and an innovative tilting bridge, the Gateshead Millennium Bridge, a work of art in itself. The word Geordie is used these days as an informal and affectionate term for Newcastle's inhabitants. Newcastle has been been an important industrial and commercial centre over the centuries, the main industries have been based around the exporting of coal, steel manufacturing, shipbuilding and engineering.
