Art, Sustainability and Heritage: A Walking Tour with Power and the Water

A field report of the Water and the Power team’s visit to the Dunston Staiths is available on the website of the Jetty Project. The piece recounts how the team members were dragged along for some exercise, art and industrial heritage during their busy team meeting in early June. They were shown the restoration efforts of the Dunston Staiths, the largest wood structure in Western Europe, and the former industrial banks of the River Tyne.
