Part 1 HERE

Tynemouth Boating lake was made in Victorian times, you can row around it and it’s home to swans and ducks and other watery birds, and as one of our clues was found there I took a few shots , there was a dramatic sky that day!

These chaps run the boat hiring.

Police box 16 which has been up for sale since 2015 and as far as I know is still available!


Part of our quest involved a long walk along the coast, in the picture below you can see South Shields and Herd Groyne lighthouse

a panorama of the same view, these are taken from the Collingwood statue

This chap was a member of the Tynemouth Volunteer Life Brigade and is taken outside of their museum, he kindly pointed to the clue for us 🙂

Commanding the attention of all shipping on the Tyne is the giant memorial to Lord Collingwood, Nelson’s second-in-command at Trafalgar, who completed the victory after Nelson was killed. Erected in 1845, the monument was designed by John Dobson and the statue was sculpted by John Graham Lough. The figure is some 23 feet (7.0 m) tall and stands on a massive base incorporating a flight of steps flanked by four cannons from The Royal Sovereign – Collingwood’s ship at Trafalgar. That’s Sophie on the steps.


That’s part 2 done, more yet to come, stay tooned 🙂

    Those skies looked as it they were about to fall on you!
    The tiny police station looks like a very bijou place for a holiday flat. I looked it up, and cannot find out how much they wanted for it. It appears to have been removed from sale.
    Looking forward to the next part.
    Best wishes, Pete.
