Signage, Waggonways, Whitley Bay
Signage, Waggonways, Whitley Bay
The historic 19th century waggonways network was once used to haul coal to ships on the River Tyne from dozens of coal mines in the area, but these had fallen into disuse and disrepair over many years. In 2000 North Tyneside Council transformed more than 30 miles of routes as part of the Government's Liveability Fund and this particular route follows the course of the Avenue Branch of the Blyth & Tyne Railway.
