Excerpt from Transactions of the Tyneside Naturalists' Field Club, 1863-64, Vol. 6
But the field widens when we come to mediaeval times. In remains of ecclesiastical and civil buildings the district abounds. The cathedral church of Durham, with the remains of the various monastic buildings there, may claim the first place, and we have noble examples of the skill and taste of our early architects in the conventual buildings of Finchale, Tynemouth, Hexham, Brinkburn, Hulne, and Holy Island, and in St. Nicholas' Newcastle, Darlington, Staindrop, St. Andrew's Auckland, Hartlepool, Lanchester, Easington, and numerous other most valuable examples of collegiate or parochial churches.
