Derwent Walk Country Park


Derwent Walk Country Park

Derwent Walk Country Park is situated between Swalwell in the north to Consett, County Durham in the south, it consists of ancient woodlands, wetlands, riversides and reclaimed industrial land.
Nature which lives in the park include badgers, roe deer, foxes and a variety of birds.
Recently red kites have been reintroduced through the Northern Kites project after being absent for 170 years.
The Derwent Valley Railway opened in 1867 and carried passengers and cargo including iron ore to Consett and coal to Newcastle.
The nine arches viaduct which is 500 feet long was built because the Earl of Stathmore would not allow the railway to pass through the nearby Gibside Estate.

Exhibition Park Newcastle


Exhibition Park, Newcastle.

In 1870 it was decided that part of Newcastles' Town Moor was to be used as a recreation area for the people of the city.
There was a Royal Jubilee Exhibition in 1887 which attracted 2 million visitors and this is where the name of the park came from. A remaining feature of the park which has survived to this day is the bandstand.
In 1934 a science museum was created in the park's pavilion known as the " The Palace of Arts" which closed in 1983 and the contents, including the famous and historic Turbinia ship were moved to the Discovery Museum in Newcastle.
Freddie Shepherd of Shepherd Offshore Ltd bought the Palace of Arts and has renovated it.
Wylam Brewery started production here in May 2016.
