The local area
Washington has strong links to the coal industry thanks to the presence of a number of pits in the area, while the town was also important within the chemical industry. Washington became a new town in 1964, which led to substantial growth for the town, which benefits from an excellent location equidistant to Newcastle, Sunderland and Durham.
Passenger rail services ended in Washington during the 1960s, and the town is one of the largest in Britain without an operational railway station. There is a bus station at the Galleries shopping centre that offers plenty of services to parts of the region including Newcastle, which is around half an hour away. The A1(M) road begins to the west of Washington’s centre, providing the town with easy access to cities such as Leeds. Newcastle Airport meanwhile, lies around 15 miles away from town.
There is a good selection of schools in the area for families with children to take into account, with primary options including Barmston Village Primary, Biddick Primary and John F. Kennedy Primary. Biddick Academy, Washington School on Spout Lane and St Robert of Newminster Catholic School are among the choices at secondary level.
