Ouseburn :: Shared Description

The area beside the Ouse Burn north of its junction with the River Tyne was the cradle of the Industrial Revolution in Newcastle and was once home to many thriving (and very dirty) heavy crafts and industries. It fell into disuse and dereliction by the mid-twentieth century. The incarnation of the Valley in 1996 as a cultural regeneration hotspot was initiated by the Ouseburn Trust, in partnership with the local authority. The Trust remains a landlord and developer in the Ouseburn, and seeks to involve people in the heritage and regeneration of the area through its programme of free walks, talks and volunteering activities.

The river was previously tidal from roughly below Byker Bridge, revealing dark mud at low tide. The Ouseburn tidal barrage at the river mouth, which was completed in 2009, now retains high water in the Ouseburn at low tide, with the objective of providing a pleasanter environment alongside its banks at low tide, thus promoting development.
