Played in Tyne and Wear

Charting the Heritage of People at Play

Lynn Pearson

Illustrated with archive and contemporary photographs, this social and architectural history explores the sporting heritage of the Newcastle, Sunderland and Tynemouth areas, where former cock-fighting pits exist alongside Victorian swimming baths, pigeon crees and stadiums. After examining recreational activities in the region, the book focuses on nine sports whose associated sites and buildings have helped to shape the historic environment of Tyne and Wear.
