This is the story of the Willington Waggonway, an early wooden railway built in 1785 which was discovered on Tyneside in 2013. Identified as a discovery of international significance by railway experts, the waggonway was rescued and preserved by Tyne and Wear Archives & Museums with funding from Arts Council England.
