Tynemouth with Michèle and Brian – 10 August 2007

Last August, I had a visit from my friends Michèle and Brian. Michèle Sharik is a highly regarded player of handbells (a much more serious instrument than many people realise), and was on a tour of selected locations in the UK. They were with me for a couple of days, and on their last morning before moving on to another part of the country, we went to Tynemouth Priory. It’s long been one of my favourite places, with its fascinating mix of medieval priory ruins, remnants of a castle, a first world war gun battery and a modern (though now abandoned) coastguard station.

Brian’s another keen photographer, and much fun was had by all. It was a good clear day, and the view along the coast was quite superb. Lots of views of the priory, the coast and the people in this album.
