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.
