Of course historically it was Ewesburn.Quick pronunciation question - We're organising a works night along the Ouseburn, and no-one could decide how the 'Ouse' is pronounced. Some pronounce it to rhyme with 'mouse', some to rhyme with 'cruise'. One lass even thinks it rhymes with 'mews', but she's from Manchester and not to be trusted.....which is it? Is there a definitive answer even?
I always pronounce it as Ooze Burn.
