Chalets at Ferry Landing, Ovington

  • Description

    "This area on the north bank of the River Tyne was the site of the Eltringham Ferry before the holiday chalets were built. The ferry provided access to Mickley Station and was operated from a Boat House on the south bank of the river. It operated until about 1962. Ovington has been a holiday chalet centre since the 1920s, providing access to the countryside for people from the industrial areas of Tyneside. In recent years they have declined but there are still substantial numbers at Overdene, Whittle Dene, Ferry Landing and along the Ovingham road. They are mainly occupied in the summer months."
