The Baltic Centre for Contemporary Art on the Gateshead quayside. Nice building, shame about most of its contents…

 Horses at War


Pictures from Beamish‘s Horses at War event in mid-April.


Rowley station was relocated from its site on the Stanhope and Tyne Railway, and the signal box from near Consett.

St Helen’s church, Eston, had been demoted to a cemetery chapel with the establishment of larger churches to serve the growing city of Middlesborough. Closed in 1985, it was due to be demolished, but was dismantled brick by brick and now rebuilt at Beamish.
