The Fireplaces of Belsay Hall & Castle

Belsay Hall has belonged to The Middleton Family since the early 1800's (Owners of The Castle). The family resided here until 1962 when it was given to English Heritage.
The completion of the hall and gardens was largely due to the eccentric Sir Charles Monck who designed the house in Greek Revival style after a visit to Athens loosely based upon The Temple of Theseus. The Quarry Gardens present a mixture of wild and cultivated plants, and also boast two very well protected species within the world of the wildlife - Red Squirrels & Brown Long Eeared Bats.

Tynemouth Priory

Looking from the beach at South Shields: when you look the Priory stands out as you head towards South Shields from along the coast from Washington. Birds resting on the rocks

Just by Souter Lighthouse if you look over the cliffs all you can see the birds and the corrosion of the cliffs from the sea, it's a very popular place for bird watchers.

Souter lighthouse

It has stood out on the coastline for many a year has been a safety net for all the sailors out at sea, its red and white standing out on the skyline

Beach by Roker

This part of the beach is just near the coast guard look out near Roker by the playground that used to be the old paddling pool
