Village guides are a unique new series of guides designed for the iPhone and iPad. They allow both the casual visitor and the long-time resident to have a fascinating insight into the past by telling the story of villages through text, audio and superb archive photographs.
Set in the North-East of England, they bring the region’s particular mix of industrial and medieval past to light in a way that traditional guidebooks cannot match. They also have very useful information for the visitor such as listing where to park or finding out where the nearest cash-point is. Plus you can also find out somewhere great to eat.
This village guide covers Pegswood, describing over twenty-five fascinating buildings or sites to go and look at. It has almost hundred photographs and illustrations, many of which are archive prints that are seldom seen and the story behind each site is available in twenty-five unique recordings to listen to and enjoy as you walk around and explore.
• Read about rural Pegswood and the farms that it had and the early technology that they used to use.
• Find out about early industry in the area.
• Discover the story of mining here.
• Learn about the early conditions in the Pit Raas.
• Uncover the symbolism behind Robin of Pegswood
• Hear about life for schoolchildren in the village a hundred years ago.
• Explore where the old pit heaps used to be.
I hope that you enjoy it and that it encourages you to try out other village guides in the series, such as Bothal, Ashington or Choppington.
