Pictures of The River Tyne

Pictures of The River Tyne

The River Tyne stretches out to over 100 kilometres (62 miles) in length and is formed by the two rivers, the North Tyne and the South Tyne that both converge in Hexham in Northumberland, this area has thus been nick named ‘Waters Meet’ as the two rivers meet and join here. During the 13th century the River Tyne was used as a main pathway for the export of coal up until the coalfields declined in the late 20th century. Although not used today there still lies some of the original structures that were used to load coal onto transporting ships.River Tyne pictures are available from our web site

During the 1940’s the River Tyne was well known for its thriving fish life and trout fish were regularly caught in their droves. It was very common for trout to be caught that weighed over 1.4lb’s, some weighing up to 4lb, once the word got out that fish of this size were being caught people travelled from far to try to catch a big fish for themselves and many competitions took place on the waters. We have probably the largest collection of River Tyne pictures

In the early 1950’s gravel digging took place on the River Tyne which left the flow of the water disrupted as there were large holes on the bottom of the river, this causes a large population of pike to build up which took over the salmon, it is reported that not many salmon were caught at this time at all. The gravel was removed in the late 50’s and a dam was created to help the run of salmon, after this the number of salmon started to increase over time.
