Westerhope expanded substantially in Victorian times with the discovery of workable coal reserves. This ward had a population of 9,196 at the 2011 Census. The coal reserves have now been largely exhausted and the two pits - Coronation & North Walbottle - have long since closed. After the extraction of 21.5 million tons of coal, the North Walbottle pit was closed in 1968 as further coal extraction would have risked undermining the runway of Newcastle airport, which lies about 5 miles to the North.

There can be some confusion because part of Fenham is included in the Wingrove ward, although there is a separate Ward called Fenham; also Fenham ward encompasses parts of Newcastle that are not considered part of the Fenham area.
