Sandyford Road


Sandyford Road is a 1.25km long road which runs from the centre of Newcastle to Jesmond via Sandyford. The starts from St Mary's Place in the city centre, running past the Civic Centre, the city campus of Northumbria University and buildings of Newcastle University. The road continues through Sandyford / Jesmond, past Jesmond Cemetery, until joining Jesmond Road and the A1058 route to the coast. There was once a deep ravine around the area of the junction of Sandyford Road and Grantham Road. This was the valley of the Sandyford Dene, a tributary of the Ouse Burn. There was a bridge and 'Lambert's Leap' where Cuthbert Lambert survived falling into the ravine after his horse jumped over the parapet of the bridge here in 1759. Sandyford Dene was infilled sometime after 1887.
