Burdon Moor

The site offers a taste of that wild upland experience at one of Gateshead’s highest points.

  • It has a short circular 'Accessible For All' walk and a small number of sculptures on or near the site.

For more information on the wildlife, visit our Bringing back Burdon Moor Project page.
