Straight into the heart of newcastle - lovely bridge and great view on a nice sunny day - on a windy day its scary!! Cars far too close to the pavement though - as its the main road into newcastle it could really do with the railings between the road and path,

I moved away a fair few years ago. This site when returning for a visit always makes me smile. A true icon of the city and the area as a whole.
