Friday little planet

Posted by
Curly (South Shields, United Kingdom) on 23 March 2012 in Cityscape & Urban and Portfolio.

Sort of forgot all about my little planet day last week!

This is Church Way adjacent to the Market Place in South Shields.
The big ugly building on the left is called Wouldhave House, it is about to be demolished to make way for a new development, thank heavens.

St. Hilda's Church at the top is the oldest in South Shields having been founded by Saint Aidan in 647 ad along with Princess Hild who by then had become a nun. It is the parish church of South Shields.
