Site of the former North Wylam Railway Station

  • Description

    "There is another photo here [[1517986]] North Wylam was the most westerly station on the Scotswood, Newburn & Wylam Railway. It was opened in 1876 and closed in 1968. The site was cleared in January 1975 leaving few visible remains. It is now a grassy open space adjacent to the car park of the Tyne Riverside Park and the former track ('Wylam Waggonway') a walking and cycle route. There is a detailed account here: http://www.disused-stations.org.uk/n/north_wylam/index.shtml" Photo by Andrew Curtis, 2011.
