That part of Newcastle’s Riverside, just beyond the Redheugh Bridge, has a cycle-footpath which stretches for two miles before leaving the river side. At regular intervals there are public information panels which explain Newcastle’s industrial past. The text on these panels is reproduced here, some of the panels are too difficult to read. Other panels such as Dunston Staithes are missing at the time of writing.
On the Quayside Path, heading west past the High Level Bridge and walking toward the Copthorne, it feels like you are leaving the City. However from this point, the Quayside Path, now better called the Riverside Path, extends for another two miles.
There are the three Western Bridges to walk under and ten information panels see and numerous ‘Art Works’. The first five information panels are faded and very difficult to read, the second five are still crystal clear, the text from all ten panels has been reproduced here.”
