The climate in Sunderland and the North-East tends to be colder and drier than the rest of England. The south-west wind is masked by the Pennines, but often a strong north-east wind appears to come straight from the Arctic. If this brings driving rain, then there is a risk of penetrating damp. Hence there is value in making sure that you gutters, drains, windows and doors are in good order, keeping the warmth in and the cold and rain out.

Sunderland is a large city on the north-east coast of England. It is the centre of a metropolitan borough. Nearby towns include Chester-le-Street, Ouston, Pelton, Seaburn South Hetton and Whitburn in South Tyneside. The historical city of Durham lies nearby, as does Washington.

As with much of the North East, Sunderland grew on the basis of heavy industry: coal, shipbuilding. Much of the housing stock is from this era, but with new towns and expansions nearby. The economy has regenerated around knowledge-based industries and also car manufacture. The former shipyards have now become a residential, commercial and leisure facilities along the Wear River.
