Walking the River Tyne Westwards Project


8 Seperate walks taken over three years covering the length of River Tyne between Newcastle and Hexham. All the walks linked below are guided with photos, maps and text if you fancy getting a bit of fresh air.


Newcastle's Bridges Part 1 is Newcastle Quayside to Lemington Point(link) a distance of around 4 miles. Vickers Armstrong works and other factories meant I had to come away from the Tyne up onto Scotswood Road for a large stretch of this walk.

Part 1 - Newcastle Quayside to Lemington






Part 2 is Lemington Point to Newburn. A two and a half mile walk taking in Newburn Haugh. The Newburn Industrial estate means you have to come away from the river again for a short stretch.

Part 2 - Lemington Point to Newburn






Tyne Riverside Country Park at Newburn Part 3 is Newburn to Wylam. Around a three mile walk starting at the Newburn Riverside Park and the first opportunity to stick to the river all the way without any factories getting in the way.

Part 3 - Newburn to Wylam






Points Bridge Part 4 is Wylam to Ovingham which is a pleasant stroll along a good flat path for most of the way.

Part 4 - Wylam to Ovingham







Bywell Bridge Part 5 is from Ovingham to Bywell passing through Prudhoe and Stocksfield.

River Tyne: Newcastle Quayside to Lemington

This walk along the river Tyne from Newcastle Quayside to Lemington point is a little over 4 miles long and is the first leg on my project to walk the river Tyne westwards to Hexham(more on that later). For at least a third of that distance there is no access to the Tyne due to an industrial estate and the former Vickers Factory.

River Tyne: Lemington to Newburn

Part 2 of my River Tyne walk starting out at Lemington just west of the A1 motorway following the river along to Newburn. A pleasant walk of around two and a half miles although the Newburn Industrial Estate caused me to come away from the river for a while.
