The Town Of Wallsend In North Tyneside

The Town Of Wallsend In North Tyneside

Wallsend in North Tyneside is a historic town set on the banks of the river Tyne and is famous as the North East end of Emperor Hadrian’s Roman Wall. 

Progress in the ongoing redevelopment of Wallsend is continuing with the continuing redevelopment of the Wallsend’s town centre, including the future proof business and energy hub development of the former former Swan Hunters shipyard.

The restoration work carried out at Richardson Dees Park gives thousands of children somewhere to play, while a massive amount of work has gone into restoring the Wallsend Hall Grounds and arboretum, creating a scenic wildlife and floral corridor which also includes Wallsend dene & wagon way.

This fantastic track of suburban countryside runs generously through the heart of Wallsend and is a perfect playground and exercise area throughout the spring, summer. autumn & even winter months.

The regeneration of Battle Hill including the building of a new shopping precinct, the building of a second Tyne road tunnel and the refurbishment of the Tyne pedestrian tunnel in Willington Quay are visible signs of the significant amount of money being spent on the further development of the town of Wallsend.

Along with the demolition and rebuilding of Burn Closes Bridge, which links the the Town centre to Holy Cross, Rosehill & Howdon to Wallsend town centre,  as well as a multi-million pound swimming pool attached to Burnside Enterprise College, help show the changes happening in the last decade.

Though this progress seems slow to some Wallsender’s, a vast amount of new money has already being earmarked to be spent on the town and its surrounding areas, with a multi million pound scheme to redevelop the site as Swans Energy Park.

The towns historic name SEGEDUNUM which translates to “strong fort” is visible on many of the town’s various road signs and our mixture of local articles, links, comments, photo’s, slide-shows and videos will help remind you of Wallsend’s rich and historic past.
