About The North East of England
From the medieval times Northumberland mined iron core, lead and silver. This mining and the mining for coal has stopped.
Northumberland’s shipbuilding and glass-making have also declined. Now the county produces electrical machinery and pottery. There are manufacturing and engineering industries in parts of Durham and Tyne and Wear. Tyneside was once the country’s chief producer of salt, which was extracted from the North Sea.
