Hollow-way to old ferry crossing, Tyne View, Wylam
Hollow-way to old ferry crossing, Tyne View, Wylam
Close to the site of an old ford, which apart from a small ferry, had been the only means of crossing the River Tyne before the opening of the bridge. Even after the bridge was built in 1836, the ford continued to be well-used by drovers who wanted to avoid having to pay the bridge tolls. A hollow-way created by users of the ford can be seen running down the grass to the river bank just east of the terraced houses of Tyne View.
