Ouseburn Trust - Back to the Future Guided Walk in Ouseburn

What to expect

An exploration of Ouseburn past, present and future covering a circular 2 mile route around the Valley.

The Ouseburn Valley is often considered the birthplace of the industrial revolution in Newcastle. The area's rich industrial background dates back to the 17th-century. By the mid-20th century, many of the local industries, houses and pubs had either closed or moved out. The area presented a sorry neglected combination of empty buildings, derelict sites, scrapyards, warehousing, and car-related businesses. 

This all started to change with the introduction of artists and musicians to the area in the early 1980s. Now, Ouseburn is a thriving urban village - home to a conservation area and often dubbed Newcastle's Cultural Quarter. The route does include some gentle inclines and steps, there are seating points across the route.
