Jarrow Hall Free South Tyneside Visitor Guide 2017

Blast From The Past

Experience life in Anglo-Saxon times thanks to a new attraction in South Tyneside which pays tribute to the Venerable Bede and his enduring legacy.

South Tyneside’s latest stellar attraction, Jarrow Hall, opened its doors in April after a £100,000 investment and it’s quickly becoming one of the country’s leading Anglo-Saxon attractions. Run by the Hebburn-based charity Groundwork, it features an interactive museum, which chronicles the life of die Venerable Bede (who transformed astronomy and theology from South Tyneside in the early Anglo-Saxon period), a heritage petting farm and a popular on-site cafe.

If you’re looking to escape from the hustle and bustle of city life, then Jarrow Hall is just the place. A haven of tranquillity in a busy town, this 11-acre site is home to a range of domestic animals from pigs and sheep to goats, ducks and hens. But this is a petting farm with a difference. Designed to give an insight into Anglo-Saxon life, the farm is populated with rare breed animals that represent the kind of animals that would have been farmed in South Tyneside 1,300 years ago.

“By working with the rare breed animals we get an insight into how the Anglo-Saxons would have farmed,” Leigh Venus, Operations Manager at Jarrow Hall, explains. “We try to use traditional techniques as much as we can and we’re in contact with people across the country who manage rare breed animals to get more animals on site.”

Visitors to the farm can feed the animals themselves or go along to one of the talks by the site’s farm manager during the daily 3pm feed. When you’ve finished, sample produce from the Medieval herb garden in the aptly-named Hive Coffee Company café.

“.There’s a history within the monastic realm of the Anglo Saxon period of keeping bees,” Leigh explains.‘Honey was used for making mead and for making books and inks, and Hive Coffee Company were a perfect fit. They’re working with the herb gardener to use herbs from the garden in their food.”

“As well as regular art exhibitions, creative workshops and heritage craft demonstrations such as weaving or making rune necklaces, there’s a programme of reenactments, live weapon displays, archery and live performances”.

The cafcafé is housed within Jarrow Hall House, a Grade II-listed 18th century manor house which has just been given a complete refurbishment. “It doesn’t look like a Georgian interior, but it is a renovation that is sympathetic to the colours and styles of that era,” Leigh explains. “We had a heritage paint palette and we took advice from a Georgian era expert at Durham University.” The hall also houses a classroom space, which is used to support the attraction’s events and education programme.

Jarrow Hall is also home to the Bede Museum, which has been preserving the legacy of the Anglo Saxon monk Bede since 1974. From the monastery at Wearmouth-Jarrow, Bede penned a number of important philosophical and theological works, including The Ecclesiastical History of the English People, which chronicles the history of people’s relationship with Christianity.

“He was essentially a local lad done good,” says Leigh. “He came to the monastery aged seven and changed the world. His work is the cornerstone of English history and the English national identity. He was a polymath, a scientist, a poet, he did a lot of work to figure out the exact birthdate of Christ and the date Easter should fall, and in doing so he did a lot of hard science as well. He worked out the motion of celestial objects like the moon and the sun and how that affected the tides”.

Discover this history for yourself at Bede Museum which is bursting with fun exhibits that capture Bede’s life and achievements. The museum is home to Europe’s largest early collection of stained glass (which dates back to the 7th and 8th century), as well as a full-sized reproduction of the Codex Amiatinus – the oldest complete Latin Bible in existence.

“Three of these huge Bibles were produced at the Wearmouth-Jarrow Monastery and Bede would very likely have worked on them,” Leigh explains. “Two are almost completely lost to history, but one was given to the Pope in Rome. The man in charge of the monastery actually died en route and his monks got it the rest of the way. The one here in Jarrow is only the second full-sized copy in the world. The other is in the Laurentian Library in Florence.”

Fans of Bede should also pay a visit to the nearby St Paul’s Church and Monastic site — the remains of the site where Bede once lived and the original Codex Amiatinus was written.

Throughout the year Jarrow Hall offers a range of hands-on events and activities to help visitors engage with this Anglo-Saxon history. As well as regular art exhibitions, creative workshops and heritage craft demonstrations (such as weaving or making rune necklaces), there’s a programme of reenactments, live weapon displays, archery and live performances taking place — there’s something for everyone.

If you’ve got any energy left after all of that, there’s a soft play area and a natural play area on site and Drewetts Park is just a stone’s throw away — so you can rest assured that your little friars will be completely tuckered by the end of the day.

South Shields Coastline Free South Tyneside Visitor Guide 2017

Family Favourites

South Tyneside is jam-packed with fun things to do and great places to visit. Plan your next family outing with this handy guide.

Haven Point. This state-of-the-art leisure centre on the seafront at South Shields comes complete with two pools, a sauna, a steam room, a gym, two dance studios and a cafe. Oh yeah, and there are some wicked water slides in the leisure waters area, along with a bubble spa and a water play area. Dive in.

Jarrow Hall. A fantastic new attraction where little historians can learn more about one of the North East’s most famous names: the Venerable Bede. Animal-lovers will delight in wandering around the farm, meeting pigs, goats and other animals.

Marsden Bay. At this beautiful setting, the whole family can clamber among the rock pools and watch the kittiwakes, fulmars, gulls and cormorants of one of England’s most important seabird colonies.

The Word. National Centre for the Written Word. One of South Shields’ top attractions, this new, state of-the-art venue is perfect for families – there’s even a whole floor dedicated to children. The library here is home to more than 70,000 books, StoryWorld is an immersive storytelling experience kids will love and 2017 sees the Shiver Me Timbers exhibit come sailing into South Shields, ready to take little landlubbers on a nautical adventure they’ll never forget.

Ocean Beach Pleasure Park. A classic seaside funfair full of timeless rides and high-tech attractions. Urban Wave, the only surf simulator of its kind in the country, allows your little beach dudes to try out surfing without getting wet, while the Laser Maze will test your agility to its limits. Can you get across the room without crossing the laser beam?

South Marine Park. The crowning jewel of South Shields’ seafront, South Marine Park boasts a miniature steam train, a boating lake and two play areas. In addition, there’s green space, picnic tables, a cafe and, of course, great views of the sea. Just next door, North Marine Park also offers stellar views. South Tyneside has loads more green spaces to enjoy too. Be sure to check out Cornthwaite Park at Whitburn, Drewetts Park in Jarrow and Tilesheds Nature Reserve in Boldon.

South Shields Museum and Arbeia Roman Fort. Discover the history of the area on a day out to this celebration of South Tyneside’s heritage which brings 4,000 years of history to life across two floors and is home to insects and reptiles at Creature Corner. While we’re on the subject of history, don’t forget to explore Arbeia Roman Fort — a key garrison and military supply base to other forts along Hadrian’s Wall. Learn about the area’s Roman history through re-enactments, falconry displays and gladiator battles.

The Dunes. Jump into the soft play area, get competitive in the bowling alley, get even more competitive in the arcade, then top it all off with a Sunday lunch. Find this popular entertainment venue on South Shields seafront.

The Leas. This two-mile stretch of coastal pathways, laid out along the 250 million-year-old cliffs, will lead you along the stunning shoreline from Sandhaven to Marsden Bay and Souter Lighthouse where inquisitive minds can learn about the smugglers that used to frequent the area. You’ll get some great views of the sea from your vantage point high above the waves, which also makes for a great cycling, dog-walking and kite-flying location.

South Shields’ Beaches. There are some great beaches at South Shields including both Littlehaven and Sandhaven. Water-sport enthusiasts love the shelter that the pier offers at Littlehaven, while Sandhaven is a great spot for building a sandcastle. If you’d rather keep your shoes and socks on though, why not go for a stroll along the promenade?

We All Scream for Ice Cream. There’s nothing quite like a day out with an ice cream to round it off. Fortunately, in South Tyneside, we’re pretty much spoilt for choice on spots to pick up a coneful of something creamy. Try Minchella & Co, Scoop and Bean or the Ghiaccio Ice Cream & Dessert Lounge next time you’re out and about.

The Shields Ferry. Kids love novel modes of transport, don’t they? Shun the car and jump aboard the Shields Ferry running between North and South Shields. It only takes seven minutes to cross the mighty River Tyne, but the kids will love it.

Family Events. There are plenty of events happening in South Tyneside that the whole family will enjoy. In 2017, the South Tyneside Festival’s summer concerts at Bents Park include acts such as KT Tunstall and Busted, while the Summer Parade will be entitled Once Upon a Time and take its inspiration from classic children’s stories such as Peter Pan and The Jungle Book. During the summer holidays, Kids Fun-Fest will run regularly at the Amphitheatre in South Shields and include performers, entertainers and a gunge tank!
