Birtley is situated to the south of Gateshead, in the county of Tyne & Wear in north-east England. Physically linked to Chester-le-Street across the County boundary in County Durham and forming part of the old Chester-le-Street Rural District until 1974 when the county of Tyne & Wear was created. Originally part of the Barony of Prudhoe, it was the property of the Duke of Northumberland in 1765 when it was separated from the parish of Chollerton and received independent jurisdiction, included within the historic county boundaries of County Durham. The main East Coast railway line, along which mainline trains used to stop before the station was closed, is used as a county border to the west of the town. Birtley Brick Works, located close to the site of the former station, once employed most of the town's workforce. The main road through Birtley is the non-primary A167, running from Topcliffe, North Yorkshire through to the north of Newcastle-upon-Tyne, across the Tyne Bridge. This was an original route for the Great North Road and the A1 until a bypass was built in the 1930s. Antony Gormley's famous Angel of the North is situated on high ground on the site of the baths of the old 'Betty Ann Pit' to the north of Birtley and overlooks the area.
