Memorial to the Blaydon Races
The plaque on this short length of wall was erected by the Winlaton Local History Society and commemorates the Blaydon Races, immortalised in a song of the same title. The plaque reads:

Blaydon Races
Official racing started in 1861 on Blaydon island which lay North of here. The song was written in 1862. From 1887 to 1914 the race course was on Stella Haugh, the site of the former Power station.
