Water Supply and Drainage
Starts as two streams. From north of Cragside, then parallel with and south of Cragside over Benton Road and south-east to Etherstone Avenue. The other route runs from a pond east of Benton Road, south parallel with Benton Road to Etherstone Avenue. From there one burn runs south over Coast Road, east-south-east to cross Benfield Road, south-south-east and then east to Willington Cut. This forms the boundary between Newcastle and Wallsend.
