Tyne and Wear HER(15342): Jesmond (Burdon's) Waggonway - Details
Jesmond (Burdon's) Waggonway
A landsale waggonway serving pits to the west of the Ouseburn. It is shown on a plan of the early 19th century (Watson 28/23 in Turnbull 2009, 111) with a proposal for a longer route for a waggonway to the Ouseburn for seasale. It is not known whether this latter line was constructed.
