Slipway, Tyne Riverside Country Park
Looking across the River Tyne from the Keelman's Way path on the south bank. Beyond the concrete slipway is a small parking area separated from a narrow road from Hedley's Cafe NZ1565 : Hedley's Cafe, Tyne Riverside Country Park. The house in the background is one of the properties let for visitors west of the Keelman Pub NZ1565 : The Keelman & Big Lamp Brewery, Newburn

The slipway was created during land reclammation work in the 1970s and 80s by the extraction of a large quantity of river gravel which was used to improve drainage in neighbouring land contaminated by sludge from a local water-works.
