WallsendWallsend is in Tyne & Wear, a county bounded on the east by the North Sea, and bordering Northumberland to the north and County Durham to the south. It is located around the mouths of the Rivers Tyne and Wear, two rivers that have played a key role in the development of the area. The Romans were the first to realise the potential of their success by using the rivers as a form of defence when they built forts as part of Hadrian’s Wall. Newcastle upon Tyne and North Tyneside are to the north of the county and Gateshead, Sunderland and South Tyneside are to the south.
