Meadow Well Metro station is on the Tyne and Wear Metro in the UK. It was formerly called Smith’s Park, and was a brand-new station built specifically for the Metro. The station is located on an estate where the Meadow Well Riots took place in 1991, and although the area has significantly improved since then, the estate still suffers from crime and social problems and the station has often been the scene of a number of criminal acts. Much work, however, is being delivered on the Estate to tackle to root causes of poverty on the Estate, particularly through the interventions of the Cedarwood Trust.
