Quite interesting facts about Tyne and Wear

Gateshead. Did you know that Daniel Defoe may have begun "Robinson Crusoe" in Gateshead? He lived in Hillgate it is thought between 1706 and 1710, and Alexander Selkirk the model for his famous castaway was rescued in 1709.

Newcastle. Did you know the world’s first organised dog show was held in Newcastle on June 28 1859? It was only for Pointers and Setters, and was the brainchild of a Mr Shorthose and Mr Pape. Some 60 dogs were entered.

Sunderland. Did you know that St Peter’s Church , built circa 674 in Monkwearmouth, was the first ever church in Britain to have stained glass windows? Its founder Benedict Biscop travelled, remarkably for the age, five times to Rome, and attracted craftsmen to his twin religious houses in Jarrow and Monkwearmouth. These included glaziers from Gaul (France), some of whose output has been unearthed by archeologists around the still used church.
