South Shields is a coastal town that was first settled by the Celtic 'Brigantes' tribe. The Romans then built a fort in the area to aid in the supply of their troops at Hadrian's Wall. The area around the town has long since been exploited for its mineral wealth. Originally salt was panned from the area and the coal was mined. The wealth derived from the coal industry led to the growth of the shipbuilding industry in the town. The maritime industry of the town led to it having a large Yemeni community from the 19th century onwards. Yemeni sailors were welcomed to the town to man the British merchant vessels. The South Shields Yemeni community was the first settled Muslim community in the UK. The town now draws large numbers of holiday makers who are attracted by its sandy beaches. The town also boasts a reconstructed Roman fort, a museum and gallery dedicated to the life and work of Catherine Cookson who drew much inspiration for her novels from the region, as well as a wealth of other attractions.
