On the reverse we include a large section of adjacent sheet 11.06 taking coverage further north and this includes much of Shotley Bridge, including Shotley Bridge station, Whinny House, Snow's Green, Shotley Park, Shotley House. It also includes Shotley Bridge Spa, visited by up to 60,000 people a year in the 1890s. Earlier, in the late 16th and 17th centuries, German immigrants had established sword making businesses in Shotley Bridge, and into the 19th centuries many houses bore inscriptions regarding the German families.
