Description"The Burradon and Holywell Waggonway was one of many http://www.tynelives.org.uk/stephenson/wagmap2.htm linking former coalmines in North Tyneside with the coal staithes on the Tyne. This view is taken near the western end of the waggonway where it crosses Great Lime Road near High Weetslade. Along with many other lengths of waggonway, this section has been converted into a cycle path in recent years and forms part of National Cycle Network, Regional Route 10 (the Reivers Cycle Route) http://www.cycle-n-sleep.co.uk/rinfo/map%20reivers.htm which links Tynemouth with Whitehaven via Kielder Forest and Carlisle. Ironwork street furniture, such as these mock gates, is a common feature found on the restored paths." Photo by Oliver Dixon, 2012.
