Thanks Brian. I did read that a few months ago. I was surprised to learn Barratts was no longer there, although it had probably been gone awhile haha. I've posted the link to the YouTube video I did of St. Andrew's when I was working over the road at Sky. We used to get an hour for lunch. Ty The caretaker was most helpful and insightful. The music was by another local. It's interesting what we take for granted right under our noses. I haven't looked at those photos or videos in years so I don't know if Jane Smith may or may not be on it. It's often difficult to read old stones. Also by the by, there's a youth group been tidying up Jarrow cemetery recently.
I haven't had my camera out in months sadly. I did get more into macro photography walking the dog and the grandson. My oldest son actually lives facing Hebburn and through mishap I discovered the old Wincomblee bit that used to catch my interest on our Riverside jaunts. By the by. I will have a good explore with the dogs and camera one of these days. It's finding the time and it's just been far too hot. I think the point was, before I digressed, it would be nice to see the views from the newly built Fenwick's rooftop cafe.
I'm using my phone so apologies for typos.
