The Green - The Green is ancient - at least 1000 years old. It is protected by registration under the Commons Registration Act 1965 as a village green, It is the only registered village green on North Tyneside and the nearest surviving village green to Newcastle city centre. The Green is a quietly dramatic space, defining most peoples perception of conservation area. It is a flat, open, welcoming place, evocative of the traditional historic greens found at the centre of so many of the country's villages. Frequently used for informal games of football and other sports, sunbathing, dog walking or just watching the world go by, it has a gentle, leafy, relaxed atmosphere vital to the life of the conservation area and the town. Yet it is also quite restrained. There is no permanent planting, no formal play areas, no goal posts, few paths, and little other clutter - its charm comes mainly from its simplicity. It would be important to protect that simplicity in the future. It is also the heart of The Green, Wallsend Conservation Area, and contains a number of listed buildings. There is an active residents' association whose website contains much more details about the history of the area:

Ancient Photographs Of The Green -

Orchard House - Orchard House, c.1890, was built behind the old vicarage in the south west corner of the area by the Mayor George Auburn Allan. It has been suggested it was built to face the river as a symbol of status, but it is perhaps more likely it was simply designed to take advantage of the southerly aspect and views it could have across then open fields. When the vicarage was demolished (along with neighbouring Point Pleasant farm in the late nineteenth century), Orchard Houses plot became the only one around the Green with a house facing away from it.

The Surrounding Area - On the north side of The Green is Wallsend Hall, now used as a function suite and occasional tea rooms and restaurant. Beyond that are the Hall Grounds, part of the Wallsend Parks and open to the general public.

To the west of The Green lies another part of The Wallsend Parks, the recently restored Richardson Dees Park. It contains formal beds and borders, bowling greens, a café, play areas and a large informal wooded section through which flows Wallsend Burn before it enters the Hall Grounds.

The Arboretum to the North West of the park (off Princes Road) also marks the site of the former Wallsend C Pit. It was donated in 1897, by Mr. Robert Richardson Dees along with the site of Richardson Dees Park, to provide a public park for the local community of Wallsend. The Arboretum was planted at a later date than the formal park and today provides an oasis of calm, a tranquil space for the enjoyment of the local community to escape from the hustle and bustle of modern life.

To the east of The Green, down Crow Bank, Wallsend Burn continues through the Burn Closes (also known as Wallsend Dene), another area of public land and an important wildlife corridor to the River Tyne, which can be reached about a mile-and-a half downstream at Willington marina on foot or by bicycle, almost entirely off-road.

To the south of The Green lies the town centre, with shops, cafés, restaurants and the Metro/Bus interchange providing links to the City Centre (Metro journey time 10 minutes), Coast (Metro journey time 10-15 minutes) and other destinations.

The Green lies between the A193 (Wallsend High Street) and A1058 (Coast Road) and is two miles away from the A19. Within a short distance there is a major retail centre, Silverlink, plenty restaurants, and a multiplex cinema. In addition, just a short walk from The Green is Burnside Sports Complex, with a swimming pool and gymnasium attached.
