Welcome to the Great North Road

“A guide for the curious traveller” – Frank Goddard

Please share my scrap book about one of the world’s most fascinating roads.

Like other Great Roads it brings with it a wealth of history, characters, towns, landscapes and curiosities.

It provides a series of threads which tie together people, places and time.

This website is NOT comprehensive and objective NOR a reliable academic source.  It is a personal perspective based on a lifetime living by it and travelling its length.

My task is made easier by others before me who have embarked on similar projects. In particular:
- Charles Harper
- Frank Morley
- Frank Goddard
- Biff Vernon
My contribution in no way displaces their more original works.

It’s very early days for this project so do come back in a month or two and see what’s new.
