    Excerpt from The Tyne: And Its Tributaries The basin of a noble river as seen from some elevated point would be a grand spectacle, especially wore it possible to take in at a glance the fountain-head, the intricate ramification of tributaries, the broad main-stream, and final absorption by the ocean. In such a view the tree-like character of the river would be conspicuous. But in the nomenclature of a river and its tributaries the unity of this figure is necessarily broken. "The Tyne" stands only for the trunk of the river tree, the two main streams which unite to form it, and all the other branches have their own names; and thus nominally the water of Tyne is divided into many waters, - the rivers North and South Tyne, the Allen, Heed, Nent, Dorwont, and Team, besides lesser streams, burns, and sykes, whoso name is legion, though but parts of an indivisible whole. Its bubbling spring is as truly Tyne as its broadest reaches below bridge. "The child is father of the man." Instead of regarding it as formed by the junction of the Rivers North and South Tyne, The Tyne might be described as rising near Cross-fell in Cumberland, and receiving the North Tyne as an affluent. In Cross-fell the great Penine range culminates; the high lands from which it rises on the east side boast in Alston the highest market-town, in Coaleleugh the highest village, and in Ashgillside the highest inhabited house in England. It is in this elevated district that we find near each other the sources of the three great industrial rivers of the North the Toes, the Wear, and the Tyne.
