This list of suggestions is by no means comprehensive, but due to the importance of Crowley’s  and the Cowen family there are
also many other history books which feature Blaydon and Winlaton.

 While local history books do go out of print due to short print runs they can be obtained through Gateshead Libraries or bought second hand at bookshops or via the internet.
Gateshead Central Library also has a full selection of Ordnance Survey maps and other photographs, books and historical documents.
