History of Ouseburn Valley Area Newcastle Upon Tyne

The Ouseburn Valley was a heavily industrialised valley in the East end of Newcastle upon Tyne, England. Since then the lower part of the valley has developed into a cultural oasis. The Ouseburn is a small river.

Now spanned by three impressive bridges, the Lower Ouseburn was the focal point for the beginnings of the Industrial Revolution in Newcastle with Coal brought from the town Moor along the Victoria Tunnel where the tidal nature of the Ouse allowed Wherries, the local barges, to be loaded at low tide and pulled out to the Collier Brigs and Snows waiting in the Tyne.

This Industrial heritage has left many large buildings, in the 1970s, the local creative Art community began to utilise many buildings as creative workspaces, these Artists, musicians and performers led the regeneration of the area which is now marketed as a trendy place to live.
