It is formed by the confluence of 2 rivers the North Tyne & the South Tyne. These 2 rivers converge at Warden Rock near Hexham in Northumberland at a place dubbed The Meeting of the Waters. The North Tyne rises on the Scottish border north of Kielder Water. It flows through Kielder Forest & passes through the village of Bellingham before reaching Hexham. The South Tyne rises on Alston Moor Cumbria & flows through the towns of Haltwhistle & Haydon Bridge, in a valley often called the Tyne Gap. Hadrians Wall lies to the north of the Tyne Gap. Coincidentally the source of the South Tyne is very close to the sources of the other 2 great rivers of the industrial north east namely the Tees & the Wear. The South Tyne Valley falls within the North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty AONB the second largest of the 40 AONBs in England & Wales. The combined Tyne flows from Hexham, the area where the rivers now thriving barbel stocks were first introduced in the mid 1980s through Corbridge in Northumberland. It enters the county of Tyne & Wear between Clara Vale in the Borough of Gateshead on the south bank & Tyne Riverside Country Park in Newcastle upon Tyne on the north bank & continues to divide Newcastle & Gateshead for 13 miles 21km in the course of which it is spanned by 10 bridges. To the east of Gateshead & Newcastle the Tyne divides Hebburn & Jarrow on the south bank from Walker & Wallsend on the north bank. Jarrow & Wallsend are linked underneath the river by the Tyne Tunnel. Finally it flows between South Shields & North Shields into the North Sea. As it passes through the Tyneside conurbation the river marks the historic border between County Durham to the south & Northumberland to the north.
