COVID-19 update

Tyne Rivers Trust considers managing the increased risk of transmission of COVID-19 of paramount importance.¬†Following the latest government guidance, issued on 4th January 2021, where possible and safe to do so, we continue to deliver our key projects. We are constantly evaluating the situation and will keep up regular contact with our partners, funders and volunteers. All practical volunteer tasks have now been paused until it’s safe to resume.

The Tyne catchment is made up of huge contrasts, from the remote and barren sheep-grazed hills of the North Pennines to the densely-populated areas of Newcastle and Gateshead. This brings different challenges to each part of the river, here’s how we work to address them:

  • The River Tyne is 73 miles (118km) long
  • The entire catchment covers an area of 2,936km2
  • It contains 2,733miles(4,399km) of waterways in total
  • It is the best salmon river in England
