Not sure if them pics are the same thing but I worked on the forth banks police station and they had an open shaft with steps down to something very similar?

Was actually quite an impressive sight, lovely brick arches etc.

Great what stuff is hidden beneath our city!

Probably will be, it's in the right place (and that's enough to discourage me from poking around any doors to see if they're open :lol:)

I see the Worswick Street Bus Station is finally on its way as well.  And how long has the oil place been gone at the other end of the swing bridge..?  Just noticed that from the High Level today, haven't been in that part of town for a few months.

Saw that for the first time today too. It's unbelievable how badly used the quayside land is really. Guess there's just not enough profit in it.

I've been involved in a campaign to help NE food and tourism recover and grow, while promoting the culture and identity of our region.

Recently, a video was released that we're all pretty proud of: https://localheroes.fadne.org/coming-home/

It's the first in a series outlining our heritage and what the region has to offer now.

The whole video was produced in and by people in the North East, with even the backing track being recorded here.

The whole initiave is a labour of love, and those behind it are all working entirely pro bono, alongside their regular jobs and other commitments.

With the football news and, well, everything else right now, hopefully, for a minute, this can serve as a distraction. Cheers!

Love this, taken from outside Holy Trinity Church in Jesmond looking towards town.

Just looked at the road on street maps. That left side of shops is now "Tyne2Let" "The Munchy Bites" "DreamGirlz" and "Dene's Deli". Majestic.
