Documentary Evidence


The route of the Avenue Branch Line of the Blyth and Tyne Railway (HER ref. 1049) is still clear striking northward from Whitley Bay toward Old Hartley. Laid in 1860, it followed in part the route of the Whitley Wagonway, which opened in 1811 (closed 1850) to carry coal from Whitley Old Pits to North Shields.
