Results, North-East England

North East England comprises the old counties of Northumberland and Durham, along with certain areas of Yorkshire 'annexed' from south of the Tees, like Middlesbrough, Guisborough and Yarm. Northumberland and Durham were anciently called Bernicia and stood at the heart of the old kingdom of Northumbria with its rich Anglo-Saxon and Celtic-Christian traditions. After the Norman Conquest in 1066 the region was increasingly a buffer zone between the English and Scots and numerous castles and towers were built as defence against the Scots. The Prince Bishops of Durham, who ruled like kings, were among those entrusted with the defence of the Border. The region's more recent past enshrines the earliest years of the industrial revolution and here the world's earliest railways developed from horse drawn wagonways transporting coal to the Tyne and Wear. Many pioneering locomotives were later developed in the region and led to the development of the world's first passenger railway between Stockton and Darlington in 1825. Despite this industrial history, no other region of England can offer the visitor a richer mix of hill, dale, countryside and fine sandy beaches. Unspoiled Northumberland is the least populated English county and Durham was always a green county even in its industrial heyday.One NorthEast Tourism Team www.visitnortheastengland.com
