Shibdon Pond and Meadow

About

Shibdon Pond is one of the few large open water bodies left in the southern part of Tyne and Wear and is one of the best wetlands in the region for wintering wildfowl.  Excellent site for bird-watching, especially waterfowl. Observation hide.

Shibdon Meadow is the last substantial traditionally managed herb-rich permanent pasture in this part of the Tyne Valley.   Durham Wildlife Trust took over management of the meadow from Gateshead Council in June 2014 and will be continuing the work to develop the area for wildlife.

Mixed terrain. Good path networks but raised walkways are not suitable for mobility scooters and the meadow has no pathways. Children should be supervised at all times.

Always open, free.
