The Felling, former township on south bank of river Tyne, east of Gateshead town centre, Tyne & Wear, North-east England.
Industrial waste land intermixed with pockets of social deprivation that would warrant a Disasters Emergency appeal on TV.
It has a Metro station, that the only people getting off at, are likened to the passengers for Charon across the river styx (not the band), but unlike the users of the mythical ferryman of the dead, few of the folk of Felling have actually paid.
The town square is modelled in the ever popular T.Dan Smith corruptions style, which sucks out whatever joy or hope is left in the fair citizens of Felling.
Slowly a program of Social and economic cleansing is been carried out by Gateshead council, so they can get people who actually pay there council tax to live there.
