HER Description

NEHL - Bull-baiting took place at Bishopwearmouth Green until at least the 19th century, as reported in a historical piece in the Sunderland Daily Echo from 1934. The piece states "the houses round the Green used to be filled with people looking on, and I can remember climbing on to the roof of what's now Dicky Chilton's house to get a good view".
