Scotswood Road


Scotswood Road is a main route along the north side of the River Tyne from Newcastle to the West End. The road, once dominated by the factories of Vickers Armstrong, is featured in the iconic song "Blaydon Races". The road begins in Newcastle city centre near the Centre for Life. It runs west, close to the riverside, through Cuddas ParkElswick, Benwell / Benwell Grange and on to Scotswood as the A695 until the Scotswood Bridge. After the bridge, Scotswood Road itself continues beyond Scotswood as the A6085 to Bells Close and goes on to join Tyne View in Lemington.
