Tyne and Wear HER(16116): Gateshead, possible course of waggonway - Details
Gateshead, possible course of waggonway
Map evidence suggests the possible course of a waggonway from Prince Consort Road running towards the north-west. This appears to diverge westward from the line of the Parkmoor Waggonway as shown on 18th century estate plans. It may represent a branch or diversion running to the River Tyne under the line of Riversdale Road described by 'A Fighting Trade' under the name of Parkmoor. Alternatively it could serve a nearby coal-pit.
