lllustrator, Liz Anelli has made this huge annotated map all about Newcastle’s great Port activities, past and present with the amazing help of the good people who live and work here. It’s up on the western side wall of The Maritime Centre waiting for you to come walking by.

If you would like to buy your own copy of the map please contact Liz
