Source of the North Tyne River
Standing Stone In Kielder, Northumberland
A standing stone marking the northern source of the River Tyne in Deadwater.
The water flows from here into Kielder reservoir before making its way through Bellingham, under the first bridge at Wark where it meets up with the southern source at Warden Rock near Hexham at a placed known as Watersmeet.
Thanks to Len Potts for the photos of the marker stone and to Fabulous North royalty Terry and Dorothy Gardner for the photo of Watersmeet.
And if you want to see the stone being put into place by a Chinook, here is a short video for you to enjoy.
How To Find Source of the North Tyne River

Thanks for checking out this place on the Fabulous North! I do enjoy a wander out in to the countryside trying to find hidden gems that not many people know about. You can't beat a rogue Pele tower up a remote hill or a mysterious stone circle or a stunning waterfall secluded in a forest.More Places from Simon
