GAP at Gibside
'GAP: Exploring Heritage at Risk Through Art' featuring artist Wolfgang Weileders 'Gap' Artwork in the stableblock courtyard at Gibside. A scale model intrepretation of the section of Dunston Staiths destroyed by fire in 2003.
Since 2020, the National Trust has been working in partnership with Tyne and Wear Building Preservation Trust (TWBPT) and Staiths Friends to help to secure a sustainable future for Dunston Staiths. The project will result in a long-term plan for this heritage asset, which will work to remove the structure from Historic England’s Heritage at Risk Register. A wider partnership, that includes the National Trust, Gateshead Council, Historic England, Tyne and Wear Building Preservation Trust and Newcastle University, has been established to explore creative ways to activate the Staiths. The partnership is also working to enhance and provide improved access to green spaces and nature with green connectivity plans between the adjacent Gateshead Council owned Gateshead Riverside Sculpture Park, National Trust owned Gibside with Dunston Staiths
