I've written before about the bridges over the Tyne, so I'm quite excited about the plans for an eighth. Even if it'll just be a temporary structure.
I hadn't realised before that the Tyne Bridge turns 80 this year. If you're ever in Newcastle, it's worth popping into the New Bridge pub near Manors metro station. I haven't been in for a while, so I can't vouch for them still being there, but they used to have photos on the back wall of the construction of the Tyne Bridge. I used to be antisocial if we sat near them, because I couldn't keep my eyes off them.
(Incidentally, the pub next door is where I met both D and one of my best friends. I haven't been in since it was known as Joe Wilsons. It's changed names twice since then.)
I'm looking forward to seeing the finished structure in July.
