Jarrow Hall: Anglo-Saxon Farm, Village, and Bede Museum

Church Bank, Jarrow NE32 3DY, UK – 0191 424 1585

Jarrow Hall - probably remembered more recently as Bede's World - has a lot going on. Inside the main building is a very informative exhibition about early post Roman Northumberland and the influence of the church in the area. Outside there is an Anglo-Saxon village and the type of farm typical of the time. Lots of goats and laid back pigs. Huge hairy pigs snoring loudly in the shade (it was nearly 30 degrees the day we visited). In the community meeting hall we were given a highly entertaining and informative talk about the lives of the people of that time. All in all there was something on offer for every member of the family.

I really enjoyed my visit here. It is a low key museum but what set it apart are the volunteers. They have come together to keep this place going and consequently it has a real feeling of community. It is also good if you enjoy feeding goats. Excellent for small children.
