This site on the coast in North Tyneside has long been very important for defending the North from invasion. The site has the remains of a medieval castle and a monastery. During World War Two a large battery of guns was placed on the site. There is also a coastguard station. It is now (2013) in the care of English Heritage.

The Bendictine priory was founded in the seventh century and some of the kings of Northumbia were buried there
