Blaydon Burn

  • Description

    "The east bank of Blaydon Burn, downstream from the site Massey’s Forge, is reinforced by a high stone retaining wall, strengthened at a later time by concrete buttresses. The large sandstone blocks extending from the right are thought to have been part of a former weir or sluice. Old maps show a mill race downstream for one of the burn's C18th watermills, known as Rennison’s or Pickering’s Mill, all remains of which disappeared under Cowen's Low Yard around 1830."
