Sunderland, the City i live in, is steeped in history. the church pictured is the first stone built church in the UK in 674AD, and was where Venerable Bede arrived when he was 7years old. This was also the foundation of glass making, in building the monestry, using glaziers from France to Glaze the building. nowadays we have the National Glass Centre which shows how glass is made.
The shipyards and Coal mining are also huge in the history of Sunderland.
