Ouseburn Barrage & The Tyne Bar, Maling Street

  • Description

    "The Tyne - until 1994 the Ship Tavern, and known as the Bottom Ship to avoid confusion with the Ship Inn on Stepney Bank, is a real ale and renowned music venue. The present building replaced the original pub in 1895 when it was damaged by fire. http://www.thefreelibrary.com/Where+have+all+the+good+pubs+gone%3F+taste+OF+THE+NORTH+EAST+beer+WITH...-a0167144939 The pub beer garden is sheltered under an arch of the Glasshouse Bridge. Lower Ouseburn developed as an area of heavy industry because the burn was flooded by the River Tyne at every high tide. The Barrage was constructed in 2009 to control the flow of water, to alleviate flooding and to maintain a more stable water depth and quality for wildlife. Navigation now proceeds through lock gates alongside a 5m weir." Photo by Andrew Curtis, 2010.
