Rising Sun Inn
The Rising Sun is a public house by the Coast Road in Wallsend. It was built in the 1930's to serve the new community in the new houses in the area built around the same time. Presumably it took it's name from the nearby Rising Sun Colliery (now Country Park). Back then, when it was built the pub was located on a quiet single lane road and had a zebra crossing leading to it - very different to today's busy Coast Road! The pub was built in an 'Arts and Crafts' style with high quality swept gables. It is on North Tyneside's 'Local List' of Buildings and Parks of Local Architectural and Historic Interest.
