The Town Of Wallsend In North Tyneside

Wallsend is a historic town in the borough of North Tyneside on the banks of the river Tyne built at the North Eastern end of Emperor Hadrian’s Roman Wall. 

Progress in the ongoing redevelopment of Wallsend is continuing with the continuing redevelopment of the Wallsend shopping precinct in the town centre, including the demolition of Hedley court along with the future proof business hub development of the former former Swan Hunters shipyard.

The restoration work carried out at Richardson Dees Park which now gives thousands of children somewhere to play, while a massive amount of work has gone into restoring the Wallsend Hall Grounds and Wallsend 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 for both children and adults to enjoy 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.

This follows the demolition and rebuilding of Burn Closes Bridge, which links the communities of Holy Cross, Rosehill & Howdon to Wallsend town centre, along with building of the multi-million pound swimming pool attached to Burnside Enterprise College in recent years.

Though this progress seems slow to some Wallsenders, a vast amount of new money has already being earmarked to be spent on the town and its suburbs.

The towns historic name Segedunum which translates to “strong fort” is visible on many of the town’s various road signs and the plans for the future will hopefully mean the Wallsend communities continue to stabilise & thrive well into the future.
