Northumbria University

Northumbria University has its origins in three regional colleges: Rutherford College of Technology, the College of Art & Industrial Design and the Municipal College of Commerce. An amalgamation of these three institutions formed the Newcastle Polytechnic in 1969, which became the major regional centre for the training of teachers with the incorporation of the City College of Education in 1974, and the Northern Counties College of Education in 1976.

Northumbria was inaugurated as a university in 1992. There was much discussion over the potential name of the new University and one potential name was the City University of Newcastle upon Tyne. However, concerns over confusion with the nearby University of Newcastle upon Tyne and also over the new name's initials saw it dropped before it was used. Newcastle Polytechnic was thus upgraded under the name University of Northumbria at Newcastle.

The trading name was simplified to Northumbria University in 2002.

Tynemouth Metro Station

Tynemouth Metro station is one of the oldest stations and possibly the grandest on the Tyne and Wear Metro network. It was opened in 1882 by the North Eastern Railway and is now a Grade II listed building.

Only the small portion of this once vast station now used by the Metro has been refurbished. A regular flea market is held in the station buildings every weekend, with an occasional farmers' market too. The Friends of Tynemouth Station have also arranged book fairs and displays of artwork at the station.

In 2007, English Heritage placed the station on its "at-risk" register of notable buildings in need of restoration.
