The Shadows of the Gallows

Crime and Punishment on Tyneside in the Eighteenth Century

Barry Redfern, retired Chief Superintendent, Northumbria Police, turns his trained eye to 18th century Tyneside. He investigates dreadful crimes, even more dreadful punishments, and some brave acts of humanity. He uncovers tales of gaols, gaolers, and daring escapes from the long arm of the law, brining as evidence vivid accounts from contemporary newspapers and reports.
