B is for ...
Baltic & Bridge
both in Gateshead which to me means Newcastle
but I will be corrected about that l'm sure!
The Baltic is a refurbished flour mill
which is now a Contemporary Art & Exhibiton space
on the riverside
I took these images when Larry and I visited a few years ago
The bridge is the Millienium Bridge over the Tyne
which is right next to the Baltic
the majestic side view
Millenium Bridge view
taken from the top of the Baltic
apparently the footbridge rises to join the top arch
when a tall ship comes through this may or may not be true,
given that Larry told me that the Iron bru drink
is from the girders of the Forth Road Bridge,
or perhaps that reflects sadly, badly on me...
(now follows some techie info for Suldog and BS5)
this bridge was built and then lowered into place in one piece
by a crane called the Asian Hercules II
pictured here for you two boys!
