River Tyne from Gateshead and Newcastle

C.1965 | Film No. 20960

20960 River Tyne Deinterlaced

Here's a chance to contemplate the Tyne’s changing landscape – a 1960s film with great views of the riverscape from the new Cruddas tower blocks off Scotswood Road. The transformation today from industry to culture and leisure along the quaysides is astounding. Look out for the Elswick Lead Works and famous Shot Tower, painted by JMW Turner in the 1800s.
