About the 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. They 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.
To help you explore North Tyneside's Waggonways, a series of cycle brochures are available to download.
