About Up North History

I’m no professional historian, but I do have a real passion and love for the subject. A history graduate and writer by trade, I moved to the North East of England two years ago, but have always been fascinated by its history.

With family links to Northumberland (including a homicidal great-grandmother – more on that later!), this is a region that has always attracted me to its long and rich history.

Through this blog, I’ll be visiting various historical landmarks and places of interest across the North of England, providing a potted history of each, along with a photo or two.

My hope is that by writing this blog, I’ll be able to share my passion for the history of the North of England with many more of you.

If you have any feedback, questions, comments or want to find out more about my freelance writing work, simply drop me a line and I will be happy to chat further!
