Historic High Street Fund

North Shields in North Tyneside & Hexham in Northumberland are the only two Geordie towns or cities, set to benefit from the UK Governments fund for historic high streets.

North Shields High Street

The funding which was awarded to 69 towns and cities is intended for projects aimed at turning historic disused buildings into shops, houses and community centres. The award was provided after the towns submitted proposals setting out the overall vision that they wish to achieve for their high street and town or city centre.

However, the very simple new Geordie eye test shown below is as an alternative for those who can’t travel to that lovely town, recently made famous by Dominic Cummings 👀😂.
