Glass Centre to Stadium of Light then Roker Park and the Marina



Lunch in the Glass House in the National Glass Centre watching Blue Tide being offloaded on the opposite bank.

Sunderland fish quay


Wearmouth Road and Rail Bridges 

Interesting pattern on walkway- was it laid this way or etched into the slabs?

Bridges from the west
Statue of Bob Stokoe celebrating the 1973 FA cup win against Leeds Utd.
I was in Zambia at the time and we were listening on the radio on short wave. Our boss at the time Buster Matthews, a Northern Rhodesian who was married to a Sunderland girl, promised us a day off work if they won- we never did get the day off.  

Large chimneys? opposite the Wheatsheaf pub.

Interesting fascade on the buildings opposite the entrance to Roker Park.

Bandstand in Roker Park.

Wearmouth Pier


Marina

Trawler in the Marina with a Berwick registration- Golden Lily.

3.6 miles circular walk passed the old Roker Park Stadium were I used to stand as a teenager in the Roker end- its now a housing estate.
