South Shields part 1, the parks and the coast.



Thought I would take a photo of the Date, Time and the temperature as I knew I would forget when I got round to doing the review lol.








This is called the Fairy Ring and we used to have picnics in here as a kid




This was once a bowling green but was very popular with us kids playing on it, so they turned it into a play area


The Law Top across the road where I was brought up, we used to play here all day long, paper airplanes ,football camps tents, no electronic games back then and alot more fun I think.















The hotel to the left of the screen is where Mick and Sandra stayed when they visited us, its called The Little Haven after the name of the beach






Here is another photo of the street I used to live, you can see how close it was to the park, every little boys dream


This is a house that I was brought up in, its right across the road from the law top and parks, I was gutted when my parents sold up, Ive got so many fond memories of the place. I always said I would buy the house but Debbie doesn't like the house enough.


It was a strange street as our side of the road was called Woodlands terrace but they other side of the road was called Urfa Terrace.




All the streets names had something to do with Romans as the roman Hadrian had a fort up in this area.




There is a small replica of the Roman Fort which is built where our old Baring Street Junior School was












They call this the Amphitheatre and have local bands playing in the summer






Just trying a few nature shots along the way lol


This is the popular Harbour Lights bar at the top of the Law Top


And here is the one of our piers which is named the Groyne but Im not sure why, in the distance you can see Tynemouth Priory




Now these have been named the weebles for obvious reasons, there was hell on when South Tyneside Council folked out £250,000 for these.




Now I started playing around with the settings on this photo and found how to get a really sharp close up picture, I still have alot to learn about this camera.
















A small model copy of the Groyne pier and to the right is an amateur theatre which has been there for as long as I remember.






















This guy done some amazing sculptures with wood and a chainsaw














There is a really good caravan site in a great location


















The Council introduced this little skateboard park a few years back and Im happy to say it gets used alot by the kids, its right on the beach






There was a live DJ on at the beach and he was getting people to join in daft games.






This is the 3rd park which hosts many celebrities mostly singers when they put the big stage up, Im sure the Happy Mondays are on this weekend




Another picture of the South Marine Park and boating lake












We used to do alot of skateboarding in this park when we were kids due to the many banks




A picture of Ocean Road which is well known for its many curry restaurants, Im sure when Mick and Sandra came we counted about 23 restaurants


Hope you enjoyed the pictures as it was more of a walk through than a review, what can I say its pictures of our parks and the seafront so the pictures speak for themselves, Ive alot of fantastic memories playing in these parks buiding camps and generally doing what boys do, our parents never saw us from early moning until we had to come home.

There is alot of investment going on at the moment with developments along the old dock yards and Ill be documenting these as they are done, part 2 to follow.

Lovely pictures of South Shields you have taken! Agree how strange it is that Woodlands and Urfa have 2 different street names. A few of my friends used to get confused when they came to visit!
