Keep Stephenson's Rocket in the North East

This petition had 110 supporters

Stephenson’s Rocket belongs in the North East where it was designed and built.

It symbolises the passion and innovation of our region. It is a historical and cultural asset whos home is the North East.

There is no reason it should be in London permanently.

The Great Exhibition of the North 2018 sees 'The Rocket' returning home. Organised by Newcastle Gateshead Initiative and in partnership with Tyne and Wear Archives and Museums 'The Rocket' will return home for a brief visit. We believe it should return home for good. We have no doubt these institutions have the knowledge and expertise to properly maintain and preserve 'The Rocket' so the people of the North East can enjoy it and learn from it first hand.
