Tynemouth, King Edwards Bay & The Tynemouth Priory – Updated Photos

Tynemouth is situated on the Northern mouth of the River Tyne between North Shields & Cullercoats.

Tynemouth Village had long been established in the shelter of the fortified Priory & now consists of Tynemouth, King Edwards Bay & the Tynemouth Priory which was first built as a Monastery in the 7th century.

The Priory was later fortified but taken by the Danes in 800, rebuilt & destroyed again in 875 & eventually became the burial place of Malcolm III, King of Scotland in 1093 …

The blue flag beach of Tynemouth Long sands is just one of three beaches the village is proud to boast of.

The following slideshow will display current & future photos of this historic & scenic village.

Photos will be constantly added to the slideshow – Last updated 28/05/12
