GeordieHeritageThe Land Of The Geordies In The Heart Of North East England – Breathtaking, Friendly & Passionate

Geordieland naturally stands for “the land of the Geordies” with the individual Geordie Communities “generally” situated within the counties of Tyne & Wear, Durham & Northumberland in the north east of England.

 

Geordieland now straddles two historic cities, the city of Newcastle Upon Tyne and the City of Durham.

The total area encompassing Geordieland is *now generally seen to include the Northumbrian areas of Gateshead, North Tyneside, South Tyneside and West Durham including Chester-Le-Street, Anfield Plain and Consett and of course Northumberland.

Northumberland includes the surrounding areas to the west such as Corbridge, Hexham, Kielder, Bellingham and Otterburn surrounding the Northumberland national park through to the Scottish border towns Coldstream & Berwick Upon Tweed.

*In the past it was usually accepted that Geordieland stretched from the northern town of Berwick Upon Tweed in Northumberland on the borders with Scotland, west to Kelso on the border with Cumbria and due east to the City of Sunderland and the town of Middlesbrough on the border with North Yorkshire.

However, due “mainly” to Football rivallry (check out the Geordie faq’s section) this border seems to have been scaled back to the north eastern seaside towns of South Shields & Boldon which borders with the city of Sunderland (view current map).
