Ouseburn (river)


The Ouseburn is a tributary to the River Tyne. Its source is at Callerton, near Newcastle Airport. It flows through Kingston Park, Newcastle Great Park, Gosforth Park, Paddy Freeman's Park in South Gosforth and into Jesmond Dene, Armstrong Park and then Heaton Park. After this a culvert takes the river underground before coming out under Byker Bridge and through Ousburn Valley where it meets the River Tyne.
