Blaydon Burn (stream)


Blaydon Burn is a stream in Gateshead, which is a tributary of the River Tyne. The burn arises south of Greenside and flows 7 km, roughly north-easterly, before joining the Tyne near Blaydon. Blaydon Burn has a catchment area of 11.3 km2.[1] The valley of the burn had once been heavily industrialised and there is a small settlement called Blaydon Burn, near where Cowen's Brickworks and Blaydon Burn Colliery were once located. Some of the valley is now designated as Blaydon Burn Nature Reserve.
