Now you see it ……

It doesn’t seem long since I had a drive up the river, but things have come and gone since I last did that.

New to me was the excavated Roman Bath House below what was the Ship Inn at Wallsend

Then the badly faded Mural opposite Segadunum that I had never noticed before.

The demolition of Wincomblee Workshops

But at least Dock No. 4 of Wallsend Dry Docks has found a new use; this time building ‘gravity foundations for 5 of 15 test wind turbines to be built off Blyth.


I must have mentioned the disappearance of the three rows of terrace houses between Wallsend Dry Docks and The Neptune Yard, but just in case here they are – gone.
