Mention Jarrow to anybody, and it’s likely that they will think of the Jarrow march, an event that took place in 1936 when 200 “crusaders” as they called themselves marched from Jarrow to London to protest at the rampant unemployment in the UK at that time.
Today, residents of the town of Jarrow, which sits on the banks of the River Tyne in the county of Tyne and Wear, enjoy reasonably full employment, although at 6.1 per cent it stands slightly higher than the North East average of 5.4 per cent.
The history of Jarrow reaches back far beyond the Jarrow march; in fact, St Pauls Monastery dates back to the 7th century when it was regarded as one of the most important centres of learning and culture in Europe. Part of the original structure of the monastery still stands today as St Paul’s church.
Once a key shipbuilding town, the majority of the local economy is now based on light engineering, the service sector and the retail sector. The economy of the North East, in general, has witnessed a steady recovery, although, in light of the Brexit situation, it is predicted that growth will slow asa investment is reduced.
Jarrow offers a splendid shopping experience enhanced by The Viking Centre which is situated in the town centre, providing free parking for 400 cars while shoppers can explore the products and produce for sale at 50 shops and stores of all types.

Slips, trips and falls in Jarrow
As well as road traffic accident injuries, we also handle lots of injury claims resulting from slips, trips and falls in Jarrow – in fact, we handle injury compensation claims for people all over the UK regardless of where they live or work, or what sort of injury they have sustained.
Slips, trips and falls can result in some nasty injuries, not only to limbs; they can also cause head injuries and whiplash too.
Whereas some accidents like car crashes are very apparent to the people around them, slips, trips and falls, may not be. It’s therefore important to gather as much proof at the scene of the accident as you can. Photographs of trip hazards are always useful and can be taken with your mobile if you have one with you.
If anybody else witnessed your fall, don’t forget to get their name and address so that we can contact them in due course for a witness statement.
If you do bang your head, it’s always advisable to go to the hospital or see your GP as soon as possible. You might feel fine, but concussion can happen later, and if you have an internal bleed, which may not be obvious, this can cause serious damage. Always seek medical attention, and call us here at Accident Advice Helpline as soon as you are able.
