North Tyneside Council

Overview

'The historic 19th century Waggonways network was once used to haul coal to ships on the River Tyne from dozens of coal mines in the borough, but had fallen into disrepair over many years. In 2000 North Tyneside Council successfully bid for over £2m worth of funding to transform more than 30 miles of routes as part of the Government's Liveability Fund. The former haulage routes were transformed into a welcoming and accessible community leisure, travel and learning resource.'

Overview

'This website arose following the publication in leaflet form of seven North Tyneside "heritage" walks by North Tyneside Council and other interested parties. These seven walks form the centrepiece of this website and are intended to give the reader a taste of many of the "historical" facets of North Tyneside ...'
