As part of our recent trip to the North East, we spent the day in Durham, around the cathedral and river walk. We also called by to see the Angel of the North, while we were in the area Here is a selection of photos taken on the day, so with mobile phone camera and a few with digital SLR. Hope you enjoy them.
We recently had the pleasure of visiting Beamish Museum in County Durham, England. It was a great day in terms of the weather, if anything a little too hot for such a long walk, but much better than it would have been had it been raining. Here is a collection of photos taken on the day. Some of the images were taken on mobile phone and a few on digital SLR.
I would highly recommend you pay the place a visit, it’s expanding all the time, with most of the buildings being taken down brick by brick from their original locations and painstakingly rebuilt within the museum. There is currently a small steet setup with shops and other businesses, houses, a steam train and station, a mine with shaft you can go down, and a farm. There is a 1950 town set being built at present, which should be a great addition to an already exceptional museum experience.
We popped into Port Issac on our way back to base during our recent holiday in Cornwall, and what a delight it was. Here are a few photos of our visit, if you find yourself in the area I would recommend having a look around.
On our recent holiday in Cornwall we happened upon the fishing harbour village of Polperro. It was a great location for taking some photographs and having a mooch around. Here are some of the images taken, on what turned out to be a glorious day. There is a map at the bottom of this post with its location, if you fancy giving it a visit.
