Newcastle - 1000 Pieces
Newcastle - 1000 Pieces
This 1000 piece puzzle shows families enjoying a day out at a classic car show taking place beneath the famous Tyne Bridge. The Tyne Bridge is a through arch bridge over the River Tyne in North East England, linking Newcastle upon Tyne and Gateshead. At the time of its construction, the Tyne Bridge was the world's longest single span bridge and was officially opened on 10 October 1928 by King George V.

As with all Gibsons jigsaws, they use 100% recycled puzzle board, FSC paper and commission the best artists from all around the world. The beautifully illustrated pieces are designed to fit perfectly together, in fact, they use the thickest puzzle board on the market.
Gibson's have made some positive changes to their processes, so you can be sure you’re getting the same great puzzles and know they are kinder to the environment. Not only does the box have a fresh new look, but they have used recyclable clear labels to secure the lid instead of shrink wrap, reducing plastic waste. They use vegetable-based inks too. The gloss coating on the box gives extra protection and the puzzle pieces are stored in a plastic bag that can be recycled by most councils.
Because the box is slightly smaller than previous designs, less room is needed to transport the puzzles, which reduces the carbon footprint and means you can store your puzzles more easily. There is also an artwork poster inside for you to reference whilst you piece together your lovely jigsaw puzzle.
With over 250 Gibsons jigsaws available here, at The Yorkshire Jigsaw Store, there is plenty to choose from. From the large piece puzzles to the most popular 1000 piece puzzles there is a jigsaw for everyone. The gift box range of 500 piece puzzles offers the perfect present.
