TYNEMOUTH PRIORY REMAINS

  • Description

    The plaque on the railings reads: "The headland of PEN BAL CRAG "The place where now stands the Monastery of Tynemouth was anciently called by the Saxons Benebalcrag - Leland at the time of Henry VIII. So began the history of Tynemouth - its Priory, sacked by the Danes in 800, and castle walls started in 1095. Three Kings were buried within - Oswin, King of Deria (651), Osred King of Northumbria (792), Malcolm III King of Scotland (1093). Three crowns still adorn the North Tyneside coat of arms".
