Ouseburn Trust - Ouseburn Culvert | Summer Walks

What to expect

From the late 1800s Newcastle Council embarked on an ambitious plan to channel the Ouseburn through a culvert from Jesmond Vale to the Lower Ouseburn Valley, a distance of 700 meters. Join this overland walk to find out how the culvert was built and the surprising ways it has affected the local landscape. The walk does NOT include access into the culvert.

Starts on City Stadium and ends beneath the Railway Viaduct.  

Iain Kitt is a long-standing Victoria Tunnel guide at the Ouseburn Trust and member of the city guides team.
