Gateshead Field of Remembrance

Gateshead’s Saltwell Park is once again hosting the North of England’s only Field of Remembrance in honour of the Service men and women who fought and died for our country.

This year the hillside will be covered in 13,000 wooden crosses to mark the 100th anniversary of the end of what was described as ‘the war to end all wars’.

Premier’s Northern Correspondent Ian Britton joined members of the Armed Forces and their families as each took a moment to remember a life lost in service to our country.
