River Derwent (Tyne)
The Derwent is a tributary of the River Tyne. The Derwent starts with the confluence of two streams (Nookton Burn and Beldon Burn) near Hunstanworth in County Durham. The Derwent flows about 56 km until it joins the Tyne near Derwenthaugh, close to the Metro Centre. The River flows into Derwent Reservoir near Consett, through Derwent Walk Country Park and near numerous settlements including Blanchland, Allensford, Ebchester, Shotley Bridge, Hamsterley, Blackhall Mill and Rowlands Gill.
