41-44 Sandhill, Newcastle-upon-Tyne, Tyne & Wear, NE1 3JF

Visit these 16th and 17th century merchants' houses now under the management of Historic England, the public body that will continue the important service of protecting and championing England's historic environment following the official split of English Heritage into two separate organisations in April 2015. Bessie Surtees House will feature the brand new exhibition “I Love This Place: North East England yesterday, today and tomorrow”; a family exhibition that puts the heritage of the North East in the spotlight, and encourages people to look again at the places around them.

In this exhibition well-loved places across the North East are explored and rediscovered through photography. Historic England has searched through its Archive for images that tell stories about how the North East used to be. A Historic England photographer then set out on a journey around the region to try and capture those same views. The result is a series of photographs that highlight what has changed and what has stayed the same over hundreds of years.

The first floor period rooms will also be open to the public, where there will be a chance to take part in arts and crafts activities and badge making!

This event took place in September 2015 and the entry is now archived.
