Tyne and Wear HER(5688): Jesmond Dene, waterfall - Details
Jesmond Dene, waterfall
Gardens Parks and Urban Spaces
Water feature utilising water from Paddy Freeman's Pond. Probably designed as a waterfall. Has grate in the bottom which drains the water away under the path (HER 5686). This is one example of a number of small "grottos" in the Dene, created at the bottom of steep rock faces where hollowed stones allowed small pools to form. The surrounding rocks were originally planted with ferns and plants with a creeping habit such as Periwinkles.
