Synopsis

This book tells the story of Newcastle's Town Moor, an almost timeless green space at the heart of a busy conurbation. Famously bigger than Hyde Park and Hampstead Heath, every year it hosts the Hoppings, one of the biggest travelling funfairs in Europe. The moor has witnessed coalmining, horse racing, political meetings, ambitious exhibitions. Parks and gardens, hospitals and roads have encroached upon it, but cattle have always grazed there. They belong to the Freemen of Newcastle, who, with the City Council, are guardians of the remarkable Town Moor.
