Gas Boiler and Central Heating Installations Whitley Bay by Appollo Gas Services
Whitley Bay is a seaside town on the North Sea coast that has a fine stretch of golden sandy beach forming a bay stretching from St. Mary’s Island in the north to Cullercoats in the south. Historically, in Northumberland, the town became a holiday destination for the people of North East England and Scotland and remained a tourist destination until the late 1980s, when foreign travel became more popular.
Currently undergoing a £60 million regeneration, Whitley Bay has always been a sought-after place to live and residents with growing families prefer to ‘improve’ rather than move, so improvements to the heating systems in homes is very popular in the town.

The area is rich in history. Whitley was first mentioned about the year 1100 when King Henry I conferred it with other possessions on the Priory of Tynemouth being referred to in ancient documents and maps before that date as Witelei, Wyteley, Hwyteleg, Witelithe, Wheteley, Wytheleye, Whitlaw, Whitlathe and Whitlag.
Whitley is also referred to in the charters of King Henry II, King Richard I and King John, confirming to the priors their possessions and liberties.
The town was known as Whitley until the 1890s, by which time the confusion of the name with Whitby, in North Yorkshire, was often causing mail to be misdirected. The final straw came in September 1901 when an ex-resident died in Edinburgh and his body was to be buried in St Paul’s churchyard, Whitley.
Unfortunately, the body was transported to Whitby by mistake causing the funeral to be delayed. The council asked residents for suggestions for a new name, and the most popular choice was Whitley Bay. It has since been known as Whitley Bay, but many residents still refer to the town as ‘Whitley’.
Whitley Bay was famous for its permanent seaside fairground, the Spanish City. A fairground returns to the town on bank holiday weekends, the Easter and summer holidays, but is now located on ‘the Links’, an expansive seafront park to the north of the original Spanish City site.
The Spanish City Dome, which is a Grade II Listed building, is to become the centrepiece of a multimillion pound regeneration of the seafront complex, which will include hotel and leisure developments.
With its beautiful beaches and promenade, it isn’t difficult to see why so few folk move.
