Dunston Staiths, a Scheduled Monument on the River Tyne, is believed to be the largest timber structure in Europe. It is Grade II listed.
Free parking is available at W3W: ///cakes.mouse.mixed at the western end of the staiths for TOAL from places such as W3W: ///outfit.status.giving
and at W3W: ///papers.expect.jumped near the Staiths café at the eastern end.
Most fliers seem to opt for the eastern end, there are convenient TOAL points, plus you’re not far from coffee…
Points to note:
The above TOAL locations are close to residential buildings.
Consider the wildlife…
The staiths are included within two nature conservation designations, the River Tyne Tidal Mud Local Wildlife Site and the River Team Saltmarsh Local Wildlife Site. The tidal basin between the staiths and the houses is used by many birds, especially in breeding season. The saltmarsh gardens lie to the south of the main structure on the river Team (western end). The staiths is also an established roosting area for several species of birds.
Bear in mind that the staiths are 500+m long, so TOAL from the north bank of the Tyne is also a valid option, try W3W: ///navy.path.shirts
Land owner permission requirements unknown.
