View of North Heaton from just West of Chillingham Road towards the railway line, where Eills Factory was built in 1950s. Note the Wallsend Burn which now flows under the bungalows.

It would be interesting to know if the burn was put in a culvert or just filled in

I think the burn was put into a culvert. Its funny (peculiar) but a few years back, when we had the floods, there was an appeal from the council for people to come forward and help map the culverts, turns the councils at the time never bothered to make records of them. It happened after that new build collapsed because of a culvert.

I also remember an old lady taking about the old burn at the bus stop on Red Hall Drive a few days after the floods, she recalled the burn running through there. I think possibly that’s why the old running track next to the Lochside Pub floods all the time, because of the water table being high at that point.

This not Wallsend; it is High Heaton. It shows the junction of Chillingham Road (right), Stephenson Road (foreground), Benton Road (left) and the New Coast Road (going into distance). My grandmother lived on the estate at the bottom left.
