Wideopen, North Tyneside

Wideopen is a village located in the administrative Borough of North Tyneside, north of Gosforth and six miles from Newcastle upon Tyne city centre. The village name written as one word is in widespread local use and appears on signage at either end of the village, but the alternative form of Wide Open is still found on maps and elsewhere. This leads to an inconsistency in contemporary addresses. Wideopen adjoins the settlements of Seaton Burn, Brunswick Village and Hazlerigg.
