I wished to submit some photographs of Washington Old Hall, the ancestral home of America's first president, George Washington. I thought these might be of interest to our American cousins who view the POE site from over the 'pond'. However, I was unable to find Washington, Tyne and Wear listed in the towns index. I had to go through the search facility and found it listed there. Further, Washington Old Hall is not listed in the Attractions index.
While Washington, Tyne and Wear is not exactly a market town, nor can it be classed a beauty spot, but as the place has a population of over 50,000. persons, and with it being the location of Europe's most efficient motor manufactures, i.e. Nissan, where over 100,000.vehicles a year are produces. I think that it deserves to be listed in the full town index.
Washington dose have a couple of redeeming features, Washington Wetland Centre is one of the North East's conservation success stories. It is set in 45 hectares of wetland and woodlands on the north bank of the River Wear. In the old village centre there is the above mentioned Washington Old Hall, this is now owned by the National Trust and is open to the public.
If you wish, I will submit Washington Old Hall photograph as soon as possible.
