Flooded farmland near Heddon Haughs
View south-east from Heddon on the Wall into the Tyne valley towards Newcastle. Newburn Bridge is on the left NZ1665 : Newburn Bridge from Heddon on the Wall. The River Tyne flows beneath the bridge then curves round horizontally across the centre of the photo, hidden by trees, situated behind the houses on the right centre NZ1565 : Moore Court, Newburn. The river is tidal here and steep banks mainly protect flooding of the flood plain even after the prolonged rain of this autumn. The cause of flooding is not the river but the Reigh Burn and Throckley pond NZ1565 : Reigh Pond, east end located behind the wedge of trees on the left side which overfills from underground colliery workings and floods onto the satuarated farmland around.

The terrace of houses in the centre of the photo is Blayney Row NZ1565 : Blayney Row, Newburn
