Street Flowers – Urban Survivors
We will meet outside the Yacht, Club near the North Pier at 10.00 am. There is car parking (free) adjacent to the club-house. The walk is on either paved road or footpaths. There are some steps to climb, but no difficulties. From the Yacht Club, we will walk around the North Dock Basin and then up Sand Point Road (as the steps to the riverside path have been closed here). We the join the Riverside walk, going past the National Glass Centre, under the Wearmouth Bridge, and follow the River Wear past the Stadium of Light. We then cross the Queen Alexander Bridge and drop down onto Deptford Terrace on the South side of the River. From here, we walk past Alex Smiles depot and onto the Riverside Walk (South). Our journey then continues under the Wearmouth Bridge again, ending opposite the National Glass Centre, just past the Fish Quay. We will have cars here waiting to talk participants back to the start. This walk is approx. 5/6 miles long.
