C2C at Leadgate
C2C at Leadgate
The old Stanhope and Tyne railway (also known at one point in its history as the Pontop and South Shields Railway) was built to supply the Consett Ironworks with raw material, with a link to the coast. This section of the line was one of the oldest in the country, built in 1834. The track was lifted by 1985.

The trackbed has now been converted to form the Consett and Sunderland path (part of the famous C2C cycle route, National Cycle Network route 7). The bridge carries the Leadgate By-pass (A692, Castleside to Chester-le-Street) road.
