Welcome to the Bridging the Tyne Project!

Welcome to the website for Bridging the Tyne.

This project has been set up to celebrate the 90th anniversary of the opening of the Tyne bridge in Newcastle on the 10th October 1929.

In order to celebrate this anniversary we have organised a guided walk event which will take place on Saturday 6th October 2018. Please see the Guided Walk event page for more details.

We are also setting up an archive linked to our Twitter and Instagram accounts (@Bridgingthetyne) so that we can create a digital, interactive and participatory  social media archive which will allow for individuals and groups to share what the bridges crossing the Tyne mean to them in their everyday lives. Please use the #WeAreTheTyne to contribute to this archive.

This project is supported by the Department of Humanities and the Department of Geography and Environmental Sciences, Northumbria University at Newcastle.
