Weight and Stuff Report – 9 February 2013

A slight upward fluctuation today.

After doing the usual shopping, I went to Newcastle to have a look in the Laing Art Gallery, then walked over to the former Bank of England site. I hadn’t been there for a while, and I was interested to see how the site has been cleared. More pictures will follow, but for now here’s a hint – this walkway, which leads over from Manors, via the multi-storey carpark, used to continue past Bank House, allowing easy access through to Pilgrim Street. Now it ends abruptly, with the only way down being a quite large set of steps.

Once at the bottom of the stairs, you can walk up a small service road and get to Pilgrim Street, but it’s not a good entry to the city for anyone using the car park. I suspect nothing will be done to improve this until the area gets the redevelopment that’s been threatened for many years…
