Greenside Village
Welcome to our community website

Take a walk round Greenside village, a community in the very far west of Gateshead. Once a coal-mining village of County Durham, it is now part of Gateshead itself, its bigger and more famous neighbour. Now the pit has closed, it is once more a rural community.

This fine painting by Milton Gray shows Greenside when it had a new pit - and no traffic!

The pit was opened about 1902 and closed in 1966. Buddle Gardens is on the right, and the Methodist Chapel in the centre.

If you want to book the hall (now fully refurbished) or a room at the Community Centre, please contact the Booking Secretary, Audrey Pyle on 0191 413 2023, who will also be pleased to give you information about what is going on at the Centre. There is a fully-equipped kitchen in the Supper Room.
