Please enjoy this evolving account of Northumberland small piping in North Shields over more than two centuries.

The website offers credible information about the history of small-piping and associated music in North Shields and Tynemouth, and about the J W Fenwick Manuscript. The content will be expanded, and amended if necessary, as research allows.

Navigate using the page links at the side of each page, or the drop-down menu at the top of the page.

Although a private research forum is under development, at present there is no facility for discussion of the content.
