Waggonways

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 we transformed more than 30 miles of routes as part of the Government's Liveability Fund. To help you explore, a series of walks are available to download.
