Any chance of a picture of the Gateshead skyline as it is now, without TBT or Get Carter?
Bit delayed response and from quite a distance with my phone camera but:

July 2011:


(will be a nice reference for Kings House and the Stephenson Quarter should anything ever get done there)

Now you see it, now you don't - some snaps taken today of the cleared site, not doubt now just waiting for the landscapers :)







Odd how it is when a building is demolished the resultant foot print looks small compared with what you had imagined :bash:

Tyne Bridge Tower Pocket Park

Took this photo on Wednesday 22/09/2011.
Shows the landscaping works on the site of the tower. They have seeded the area which has now started to show (together with weeds!). There are what look like raised beds within the grassed area and some tree stakes - no trees yet though. The whole area has a small kick fence around it suggesting that no one will be allowed on it when finished!

It still amazes me how small the footprint looks - grass seems to be coming on well and no doubt we will see a nice display of bulbs come the Spring :)

Tyne Bridge Tower, Gateshead - grass/planting after demolition, pictures 30/11/19

Some pictures taken on a sunny but frosty Friday 29/11/19 approx 1130 from Tyne Bridge showing the "well established" trees and grassed area on area previously occupied by Tyne Bridge Tower, Gateshead

Compared to previous pictures the landscaped area looking a bit untidy - but just may be time of year
