Gateshead is situated in Tyne and Wear just south of Newcastle upon Tyne, and has a population of around a hundred thousand. It is known for being a coal producing town and was first recorded as such in 1344.
Since coal production has all but stopped (thanks to the Thatcher years) Gateshead has reinvented itself as being a commuter and retail town.
People working in nearby Newcastle will commute across the River Tyne from their homes in Gateshead. Gateshead has the Metro Centre as a shopping outlet, which has brought work and money into the local economy, and helped to fill the gap that the coal industry left.
Back in the early years of the 19th century, the railways brought work and manufacturing to the town, which still does have fringes of business continuing to this day.
