To develop the land directly in front of the TVLB building, into a visually low impact leisure hub for the local and cycling community.

Back in 2010 Josh Boyle completed the Coast to Coast cycle route. Elated and tired Josh was surprised to feel slightly disappointed that there wasn’t a place, a real finishing line, somewhere he could meet friends and family to mark his achievement.
This moment facilitated a conversation with his brother Mark and their friend Gareth and The Watch House Garden project was born.
At present The Coast to Coast Bike ride and Great North Bike Ride currently have no infrastructure to provide a welcoming end to a significant achievement.
We want to change this!
