The Burn (stream) ran down from Wardley area. The Ellison family utilised it to fill the 4 lakes they created in the 1800s. It's still there underground, emerging at Pig Stye Allotments, Jarrow. It then flows passed Jarrow Cemetery then under the A19 Tyne Tunnel Rd and on into the river Don. Here is the stream at the A19.
