Most of the High Street architecture dates from that latter part of the 19th century. At the far end of Gosforth behind the Gosforth Shopping Centre & the Job Pulman public house is Gosforth Park.
The origin of Gosforth’s name is thought to have come from “Gese Ford” which means “the ford over the Ouse”, referring to a crossing over the local River Ouse, however some people think that it comes from the Old English name Gosaford meaning a ford where geese dwell first mentioned in 1166, however, South Gosforth dates back to 1319, where it was noted that the English Army retreated to after a siege on Berwick.
The following slide-show aims to provide you with photos of Gosforth which will be updated over time.
Photos will be constantly added to the slide-show.
