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.
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.
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.
Leaving Newcastle Quayside looking back you can just make out all 7 bridges in this photo.
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.
