Rowlands Gill is a town situated along the A694, between Winlaton Mill and Hamsterley Mill, on the north bank of the River Derwent, Tyne and Wear, England. With the coming of the Derwent Valley Railway in 1867, Rowlands Gill became an economically viable coal mining village, and later a semi-rural dormitory suburb of commercial & industrial Tyneside. An independent village within Blaydon Urban District Council, in County Durham, it became incorporated into Tyne and Wear in 1974 and then the Metropolitan Borough of Gateshead in 1986. Due to a sizeable expansion in both geography and population numbers, Rowlands Gill has not been deemed a village for some years. Many locals, particularly the older generation, persist on referring to it as "the village", partly due to its status decades ago and partly due to out of date materials referring to it as such.It is in the greenbelt of Gateshead. The town has a picturesque setting with much open space and views across the valley to Gibside Estate, now owned by the National Trust.Local politicsIn local government Rowlands Gill is located mainly within the ward of 'Chopwell and Rowlands Gill'. It is served by three councillors, all of whom are Labour councillors, except for the north end at Lockhaugh, which falls within the ward of Winlaton and High Spen, which is served by 2 Liberal Democrat councillors. Gateshead council is Labour controlled.
