This morning, I got it together even earlier than yesterday, and went out before 10am, which is outrageously early for me on a non-work day. My main aim was to have a look at the new Northumbria University buildings. I’ve been meaning to look at these for a while, having admired them from a distance, but my main motivation today was to see
- The remains of the building next door, which burnt down on Sunday night
- The (slight) damage to the new buildings, which are due to open in September
As the remains of the burnt building were in an extremely unsafe condition, I couldn’t get all that close, but I was able to take some pictures, which I’ll sort out sooner or later. I hadn’t been in that part of town for years – last time I was in the vicinity, the multi-screen cinema was still there. Even Google had been there more recently than me!
It was a good walk, too!
 Yes, yes. And all the other ones.
