Collingwood Monument

Collingwood Monument stands guard over the mouth of the River Tyne and is a fitting memorial to Lord Collingwood who took command of the British Navy after the death of Admiral Lord Nelson at the Battle of Trafalgar.

Born in Newcastle in 1748, he gave nearly 50 years service to the Navy before his death in 1810. The monument features cannon from his ship, Royal Sovereign.

Adjacent to the monument you’ll find another fascinating piece of our history – the Tynemouth Volunteer Life Brigade – the first of its kind in the world. Established in 1864, it still operates today. The Watch House contains relics from various shipwrecks and rescue missions.
