Bede is the nearest station to the ruins of Jarrow Monastery, associated of course with the 'Venomous Bead', as he's called in 1066 and All That. It is also the station for the Barbour factory and retail outlet (aka shop). I can only afford knock-offs. Getting back to railways (if we must) fully staggered platforms are common around here. A South Shields train calls on 26 March 2019.
