Cambois Village Guide

DescriptionDo you think that there is nothing at Cambois? …Think again!
Village guides are a unique new series of guides designed for the iPhone and iPads. They allow both the casual visitor and the long-time resident to have a fascinating insight into the past by telling the story of villages through text, audio and superb archive photographs.
Set in the north-east of England, they bring the region’s particular mix of industrial and medieval past to light in a way that traditional guide books cannot match. They also have very useful information for the visitor such as listing where to park. Plus you can also find out somewhere great to eat.
This village guide covers Cambois.
•Learn about Cambois’s earliest inhabitants and what they left behind.
•Find out about Cambois’s connection with “The War Of Jenkin’s Ear”.
•Explore where the old mine in Cambois used to stand.
•Discover Cambois’s industrial past before even mining arrived.
•Learn about the more recent industrial past of Cambois.
•Identify what remains of medieval Cambois.
•See photos of German U boats being broken up in Cambois after the First World War.
•Uncover the story of a gruesome murder that took place right on the links and the mysterious claim of the murder victim
•Find out about how Cambois has been used in movies such as “Alien” and “Get Carter”
I hope that you enjoy it and that it encourages you to try out other village guides in the series, such as Blyth, Bedlingon or Newbiggin-by-the Sea which will be available very shortly.
