About North Shields

North Shields is the main settlement in the borough, and was a municipal borough from 1835 until 1974. It has a population of 45,717 (2001 census), increasing to 49,922 at the 2011 Census.[1] The town's motto is "Nil Desperandum Auspice Christo", Latin for "Never Despair By Christ's Assistance".[2] History [ edit ] The earliest written reference to North Shields appears in Henry III’s Charter of 1255 where it is called ‘Neuwerk’.[3][4] In 1346 it was known as 'Northwerk',[5][6] but by 1433 its name had become 'Norhtwerke' or North Works,[7][8]. This refers to fortifications erected on Seaton Hill overlooking the River Tyne that were constructed under King Henry V between 1413 and 1420.[9]:p.
