FASCINATING SUNDERLAND WALKING TOUR
Three original settlements on the site – Monkwearmouth where Benedict Biscop founded the Wearmouth/Jarrow monastery; (674) – Bishopwearmouth founded on the south bank in 930, and a small fishing village called Sunderland, (land set asunder) which was granted a charter in 1179.
This tour explores the origins of the city, takes you through the ages and looks at where the city’s regeneration is leading the area into the future.
