Donations welcome, free entry



For the first time in 50 years collections from Saltwell Towers in

Saltwell Park are brought together for the public to enjoy here at the

Shipley Art Gallery. The fascinating display includes glassware and

ceramics, taxidermy, bird eggs, insects, minerals, fossils and

geology, as well as objects donated from Gateshead residents.



Many of the items on display were on show in the museum at Saltwell

Towers in Saltwell Park until the late 1960s, by which time the house

had fallen into disrepair and the collections were at risk. In 1974,

when Tyne & Wear Archives & Museums took over the running of the

Shipley Art Gallery the collections were rescued and stored safely.



The refurbishment of the gallery and the new display were made

possible through funding from the DCMS Wolfson Museums and Galleries

Improvement Fund.
