The weather has yo-yo'ed between Winter and Spring, and now, back to Winter again.
These photographs were taken at the end of January on a tour around the district but would serve today just as easily. More snow is threatening.
Work has now ceased on the re-furbishment of the East Coast Mainline Bridge at Byker, a Grade II* Listed structure for it's significance to railway history. A fine job they made of it too. Well done to all those who carried out this heavy and exacting task. The bridge was open to rail traffic continuously during the period of the works.
I shall cover the work being undertaken presently to restore the site alongside the bridge in due course – weather permitting.
