Gateshead, Tyne and Wear. Fine views from here of the five famous Tyne bridges linking Gateshead to Newcastle-upon-Tyne. In its own right Gateshead is a major town. The name means “goat's headland”. At the start of the 19th century it was still little more than a village with numerous oak trees and 11 windmills, now all gone. In the beginning, the protection of the Bishops of Durham, and later the grit of the citizens kept Gateshead from becoming a suburb of bigger, richer Newcastle. Today it is nearly all modern; a great fire in 1854 took most of the historical buildings. Its famous residents have included Sir Joseph Swan, inventor of the incandescent lamp in 1878, Thomas Bewick, the great engraver, and in modern times, Alex Glasgow, the composer, singer and writer. Daniel Defoe is said to have written Robinson Crusoe here. New houses and blocks of flats are replacing rows of 19th-century workers' dwellings. The Team Valley Trading Estate, begun in 1936 to relieve unemployment, is considered a model of industrial planning. Salt-well Park, high on the bluffs, provides the town with a central recreation ground, gardens and lake. Near it are the Shipley Art Gallery, the library and an industrial museum. The gallery has a varied permanent collection and loan exhibitions nearly every three weeks. St Mary's Church near Tyne Bridge is the oldest ecclesiastical building. It dates from the 12th century but was almost completely rebuilt in 1855. The earliest feature is the south doorway. The body of the church is mainly l4th-century and it has an l8th-century tower. An anchorage rebuilt in the 18th century is attached to the north aisle and serves as a vestry.
