River Tyne: Newburn to Wylam



Tyne Riverside Country Park at NewburnStarting out at Tyne Riverside Country Park at Newburn (photos) I walked the 3 miles to Wylam (photos) on a lovely sunny spring afternoon.
The map below marks out the cycle path but I actually followed the slightly rougher path right alongside the river. At times the path beside the river became a little tricky so I would pop back up onto the cycle path for a minute or two before dropping back down to the riverside again.

There's an interestin old wreck on the south bank of the river along this stretch, only visible at low tide - anyone know any details about it? See http://imustgodowntotheseaagain.blogspot.com/search/label/wreck

Thanks. That's a new one on me. I'll keep my eyes open next time I'm down that way.
Would it be possible for you to pin point the location of the wreck for me on Google maps or something similar?
