Brunswick Village is a village in North Tyneside, Tyne and Wear, England. It is situated approximately 6 miles north of Newcastle-upon-Tyne, and borders Hazlerigg, Dinnington and Wideopen. It was formerly known as Dinnington Colliery.


Brunswick Village grew up around Dinnington Colliery, named after the nearby village of Dinnington. The first deep mine at the site was sunk in 1867.[1] At its peak the coal mine employed over 1000 people, but closed in February 1960.[2] The village was initially known as Dinnington Colliery, but its name was later changed to Brunswick.[1]

Location and facilities

Brunswick Village has a parish church named after St Cuthbert.[3] The Brunswick war memorial lists the names of villagers who died during the First World War.[1]

The Big Waters Nature Reserve, a 50 acre site centred on a lake formed following mining subsidence in the 1920s, is located at the edge of the village. The site of Dinnington Colliery is now occupied by the Brunswick Industrial Estate.[4]

Public transport links to Brunswick are provided by Arriva North East bus route 45, linking the village to Wideopen, Gosforth and Newcastle every 30 minutes.[5]
