Great fun little app

Interesting news stories and ghostly/gruesome tales. The layout is dimple, clean and easy to use whether you are browsing stories or using the location map. It would be great if it extended to cover all of Tyneside

Fantastic App

This is a brilliant app and a great way to learn about the hidden history of our beautiful city. I can't wait to visit some of the site in here, I'll definitely look at the city differently.

PLEASE keep updating this!!

A great look at Tyneside History

This App is fantastic. It's really interesting to read and hear about some of Newcastles past and past people. It's great to open up archives like this and it is done in such a fantastic way. This should be done more and this app should be used as the benchmark to work by.
