Heritage site for Jarrow

Bede to be honoured.

The government has decided to back a joint partnership bid for the twin sites of St Paul, Jarrow and St. Peter, Monkwearmouth to become a World Heritage site, with all the added tourism benefits that it will bring to South Tyneside.

Curly thinks that the father of English history, the Venerable Bede, had a hugely influential role in the growth not only of Christianity within these Isles, but also the growth of education and literature. It is fitting that the sites of his monastic works should be considered for the richly deserved honour of being called a World Heritage site. I hope the partnership's bid will prove to be successful, and if so, will only strengthen the case for the Lindisfarne Gospels to be displayed at St. Paul's, Jarrow.
