Tyne and Wear HER(5963): Friar's Goose Way - Details
Friar's Goose Way
The shortest of all waggonways belonged to Friar’s Goose Colliery. It was made possible by the effort to drain Gateshead Park and was about a quarter of a mile long. Both workings and staith were later reused in developments of the Tyne Main Colliery and in the reshufflings of Gateshead staiths.
