Tommy is a 9 foot tall sculpture representing a WW1 soldier. It was originally meant to be a temporary display feature in 2014 but the residents of Seaham donated over £100,000 to keep him. #seaham#seahamtommy#sculpture#countydurham#1UKshot#ukpotd#bestukpics#uk_greatshots#uktravel#total_united_kingdom#loves_united_kingdom#capturingbritain#explore_britain#gloriousBritain#picoftheday#photography#photooftheday#j_on_tour

The 55 year old Class 37 diesel locomotives have been used on certain regular Cumbrian coast passenger services since mid 2015. With the influx of Scottish diesel multiple units recently, the owners DRS will have to find other duties for the handful allocated to the service. It is fitting to show here this engine 37409 which is operating today on the last special farewell service. This photo was taken in happier times when Preston rather than Barrow was the southern destination on the route. #preston#class37#37409#directrailservices#lordhinton#railway#railways#railwayphotography#uktrains#ukrailscene#railwaysofbritain#englishelectric#UKRenthusiasts#trainphotography#railwaystation#diesellocomotive#rail#classictransport#train#uktravel#picoftheday#photography#photooftheday#j_on_tour

Penshaw monument part two. As it was a mid afternoon outing, it was good to catch the sun going down. Not sure if I was happy with the clouds though as it could have been better but could have been much worse. #penshawmonument#nt#folly#architecture#architecturephotography#sunsetsilhouette#silhouette#houghtonlespring#sunderland#1UKshot#ukpotd#bestukpics#uk_greatshots#uktravel#total_united_kingdom#loves_united_kingdom#capturingbritain#explore_britain#gloriousBritain#picoftheday#photography#photooftheday#j_on_tour

Happy New Year. I managed to squeeze 90 minutes of travel and photography into a busy Christmas and New Year season. I’ve passed Penshaw monument on a number of occasions but never actually made it to the top before. I remember when I was a child, my Dad wanted to visit it and we were greeted with a “Beware of the Bull” sign. It has since been opened up to the public in more recent years by The National Trust. The 1844 structure was built as a monument / folly in honour of John Lambton who produced a well received report on how the colonies of the British Empire should function with London. These days the monument is alternatively known as a hilltop icon for the people and city of Sunderland.#penshawmonument#houghtonlespring#folly#architecture#clouds#1UKshot#ukpotd#bestukpics#uk_greatshots#uktravel#total_united_kingdom#loves_united_kingdom#capturingbritain#explore_britain#gloriousBritain#picoftheday#photography#photooftheday#j_on_tour

Thanks to everyone on here for your support in 2018. The collage depicts the year quite well and speaks of extended trips to Argyll, a relatives visit to Kent and a hurriedly arranged week to Ludlow. Two photos from the same day out in North Yorkshire and one appropriately from somewhere near home on the Quayside of Newcastle. #bestofnine#bestofnine2018#inveraraycastle#lochstriven#newcastleupontyne#fountainsabbey#ludlow#canterbury#riponcathedral#ighthammote#1UKshot#ukpotd#bestukpics#uk_greatshots#uktravel#total_united_kingdom#loves_united_kingdom#capturingbritain#explore_britain#gloriousBritain#picoftheday#photography#photooftheday#j_on_tour

This large fellow was waiting at the bus stop outside my local shopping centre 😀Bought a lap top in late summer and got an e-mail about a faulty batch and a re-call for a service. Used the opportunity and did some Christmas shopping. #metrocentre#gateshead#tyneandwear#christmas#reindeer#christmasdecorations#busstop#1UKshot#ukpotd#bestukpics#uk_greatshots#uktravel#total_united_kingdom#loves_united_kingdom#capturingbritain#explore_britain#gloriousBritain#thisprettyengland#Loves_United_England#picoftheday#photography#photooftheday#j_on_tour

Durham Cathedral cloisters. Had an enjoyable lunch and afternoon catching up with #Cranberrymorning and #mistercranberry at Durham Cathedral yesterday. It was great to see them again at the start of their busy UK itinerary. It was a good opportunity to visit The Open Treasure exhibition for the first time. #durhamcathedral#durham#cloisters#arch#architecture#architecturephotography#England#1UKshot#ukpotd#bestukpics#uk_greatshots#uktravel#total_united_kingdom#loves_united_kingdom#capturingbritain#explore_britain#gloriousBritain#thisprettyengland#Loves_United_England#picoftheday#photography#photooftheday#j_on_tour

Thursday Throwback. Never done this before but not much happening here as earning a crust for Christmas. I did have a look last night at options for next year. This scene was taken near where I lived in Dunston during my formative years. This view is from a thriving cafe in a modern riverside housing estate following the Gateshead garden festival next to the River Tyne. Sometimes I spend the occasional Saturday morning in here for breakfast as it is dog friendly. The structure depicted used to be part of the coal exportI business in the last two centuries. It hasn’t been used since the late 60s /early 70s and has been occasionally open to the public including the regenerative Garden Festival. Unfortunately it was damaged by fire in more recent years. #dunston#dunstonstaithes#staithescafe#rivertyne#gateshead#newcastlegateshead#tyneandwear#1UKshot#ukpotd#bestukpics#uk_greatshots#uktravel#total_united_kingdom#loves_united_kingdom#Bestunitedkingdom#capturingbritain#excellent_britain#explore_britain#gloriousBritain#Loves_United_England#picoftheday#photography#photooftheday#j_on_tour

Shop window reflections. Grainger Market was part of Newcastle’s Victorian Grainger town development. A covered market was built to re-locate the street sellers from the now famous architectural Grey street after the transformation. These days this vegetable hall has been revamped and has a variety of retail uses, mainly coffee shops in the open spaces. #graingermarket#victorianarchitecture#reflection#newcastle#newcastleupontyne#newcastlegateshead#tyneandwear#NewcastleLife#ignewcastle#igersnewcastle#newcastleviews#1UKshot#1reflectionshot#bestukpics#ukpotd#uk_greatshots#uktravel#total_united_kingdom#loves_united_kingdom#Bestunitedkingdom#capturingbritain#excellent_britain#explore_britain#gloriousBritain#Loves_United_England#picoftheday#photography#photooftheday#j_on_tour

Ripon Cathedral in the late sunshine. Founded as a monastery in the 7th century, this Middle Ages building was the fourth on the site and eventually became a cathedral in Victorian times. I think I had to wait some time for an empty street !! #riponcathedral#cathedral#ripon#northyorkshire#yorkshire#architecture#architecturephotography#architecturelovers#1UKshot#ukpotd#bestukpics#uk_greatshots#uktravel#total_united_kingdom#loves_united_kingdom#capturingbritain#explore_britain#gloriousBritain#thisprettyengland#Loves_United_England#picoftheday#photography#photooftheday#j_on_tour
