Lamesley


Lamesley is a rural village located by the River Team in the Metropolitan Borough of Gateshead. Lamesley is also a civil parish which incorporates Kibblesworth, Lamesley village, Eighton Banks and Northside, Birtley. The parish church, the Church of St Andrew, in Lamesley dates from the 18th century, on the location of an earlier medieval church. The church and most of the village is east of the River Team; the part of the village west of the river includes the Ravensworth Arms. According to the pub Website "Alice Liddell was the inspiration for Lewis Carroll's Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, and Carroll, whose real name was Charles Dodgson, stayed at The Ravensworth Arms when visiting the [Liddell] family."[1Ravensworth Castle is nearby and the Angel of the North can be seen from the village.
