Dunston Staiths: Open Evening

6 – 9pm

Dunston Staiths

The Late Shows 2024

The historic Dunston Staiths is open for The Late Shows, weather permitting, until sunset.

The former coal staiths is believed to be the largest timber structure in Europe. It is a Scheduled Monument, Grade II listed and is owned by the registered charity Tyne and Wear Building Preservation Trust (TWBPT).

This is a rare opportunity to soak up the unique view along the Tyne from an historic structure. Wear sensible shoes and walk up to the top deck where there’ll be short heritage talks running at 6pm, 7pm and 8pm.

Wheelchairs will be able to access the lower deck and top decks separately although the two are connected by stairs on the structure itself, so access to the top deck is via the waggonway running onto the structure.
