Welcome to the Great North Road

Please share my “scrap book” about one of the world’s most fascinating roads.

Like other Great Roads it brings with it a wealth of history, characters, towns, landscapes and curiosities.

It provides a series of threads which tie together people, places and time.

This website is NOT comprehensive and objective NOR a reliable academic source.

It is a personal perspective based on a lifetime spent living by it and travelling its length.

My task is made easier by others before me who have embarked on similar projects. In particular:
Charles Harper
Frank Morley
Frank Goddard
Biff Vernon
My contribution in no way displaces their more original works.

“A guide for the curious traveller” – Frank Goddard
