River Tyne at Wylam Scars
The river wall below Wylam Scars on the south bank of the river was built for the Newcastle & Carlisle Railway. Work on the railway started here in 1831 and the line between Blaydon and Hexham opened in 1835. The wall runs for 3/4mile, downstream from Hagg Bank Bridge. It is 26 feet above water level. There is a fine engraving made in 1838 by J.W. Carmichael showing the works on this section of the railway LinkExternal link
