River Tyne 'stanners' near Tide Stone
Following dredging of the river bed and strengthening of the river banks, the river is now tidal as far west as Wylam Bridge. At low tide, large areas of shingle are exposed. These were known in Geordie dialect as 'stanners'. The name still lives on in the place name Doctor's Stanners on the south side, now occupied by the grassland of Ryton golf course NZ1365 : Ryton Golf Course
