Key points of interest in Sunderland, Tyne and Wear, North East England. In Old English sundor meant ‘separate’, with ‘land’ clearly referring to the extent of the area involved (Ancestry.com, [s.d.]). The Anglo-Saxon monk and poet Bede (673-735 AD), who is reputed to have been born in the region, states that the land concerned was split off from that of the monastery of Monkwearmouth, which stood on the north bank of the River Wear (Simpson, 2009). SOURCE In the graphic novel Alice in Sunderland, the comics author and artist Bryan Talbot tells the history of Sunderland from the Middle Ages to the current day. As he himself states: “In words and pictures, the alchemy of the comic medium shall conjure a vision of Sunderland in the crucible of your imagination.” Described by critics as a literary and visual masterpiece, the work, which is an eclectic mix of myth, history, and autobiography, is seen by many as the artist’s greatest achievement to date.

Key points of interest in Howden, East Riding of Yorkshire, England. The name Howden derives from the pre-7th century Danish-Viking compound term "heafod-denu", literally meaning "the head of the valley". This area fell under the Northern Danelaw for many centuries (The Internet surname database, c. 1980–2014). Nevil Shute Norway, novelist and aeronautical engineer, worked for the Airship Guarantee Company between World War I and II. He was a member of the team that developed the first R100, a British airship that was intended for commercial use on British Empire routes as part of the Imperial Airship Scheme. The airship’s construction took place at the RNAS Air Station Howden which had its base at a remote location three miles from Howden. Shute met with some criticism when he, in 1954, wrote in his autobiography, Slide Rule: Autobiography of an Engineer: "The lads were what one would expect, straight from the plough, but the girls were an eye-opener. They were brutish and uncouth, filthy in appearance and in habits. … I can only record the fact that these girls straight off the farms were the lowest types that I have ever seen in England, and incredibly foul-mouthed."

Key points of interest in Malton, North Yorkshire, UK. The name Malton is Old English and appears, as ‘Maltune’, in the Domesday Book, possibly referring to a farmstead where an assembly was held. QUOTATION The famed Victorian novelist, Charles Dickens, visited Malton many times. In July 1843 he stayed for three weeks at Easthorpe Hall, which was a palatial manor house close to the town. Much admiring the place, he wrote: “I am quite serious in saying that this is the most remarkable place of its size in England, and immeasurably the most beautiful.”. SOURCES Malton. Emmas Journal.

Key points of interest in Hunt's Cross, Liverpool, England. The ancient cross-roads in what was to become Merseyside, south of Liverpool, were given the name Hunt's Cross due to the fox hunts that met there preparatory to setting off. Till this day, the surrounding countryside and farmland remains the home of a number of foxes that are sometimes glimpsed there (“Hunt’s Cross”, [s.d.]). The words “pedestal of stone cross” appear on the 1848 ordnance map at the site of Hunt’s Cross, close to the local railway station, at the intersection of Hunt’s Cross Lane and Sandy Lane (Lancashire and Cheshire Antiquarian Society, 1902). Famed lead guitarist and co-founder of the most famous British pop group of all time, The Beatles, George Harrison, MBE (25 February 1943 – 29 November 2001), lived in Hunt’s Cross from 1962 to 1965. One of the stanzas to his song “Sunshine Life For Me” goes: “Now most folks just bore me / Always imposing, and I'd rather meet a tree / Somewhere out in the cornfield (Lyrics Freak, [s.d.]).

Key points of interest in Brough, East Riding of Yorkshire, England. The place name ‘Brough’ is thought to have been evolved from the Olde English pre-7th century 'burh' meaning 'fortress' (Brough, 2012). In Gaelic the term ‘burh’ refers to a ‘fortified place’. The importance of Brough first emerged when it was used as the capital of the Celtic Parisi tribe, who inhabited the surrounding area around 150 B.C. During the Roman occupation of Brough, from about 70 AD, a fortress, covering about 4.5 acres, was built to protect the settlement. The town derives its name from that fortification (Cartoons.karoo.net, [s.d.]). Lady Anne Clifford, 14th Baroness de Clifford (1590–1676), after having been raised in a largely female-dominated household, went on to become a leading landowner of her time. In her diaries, which, together with her many letters, made her a leading literary personage in her own right, she wrote the following of the castle of Brough: “This Aprille [1659] after I had first bin there my selfe to direct the Building of it, did I cause my old decayed Castle of Brough to be repaired, and also the old Tower called the Roman Tower in the sayd Castle ...”.
