Was in the neighbourhood and visited Herstmonceux Castle and the Observatory Science Centre (the site of the former Royal Observatory at Herstmonceux).
Heading south from Sunderland I popped in to the Yorkshire Sculpture Park, a place I had been meaning to visit for years.
I managed to spend almost the whole day there wandering around the park, gardens and galleries – below are pictures of just a few of the sculptures I liked, including quite a few by Andy Goldsworthy. There was a special exhibition of his, which was just fantastic, in the various gallery spaces – which unfortunatly did not allow cameras inside :-(
Spending a few days in the north east, staying with Ros in Sunderland.
Had a good walk around Newcastle and took a few photos of the bridges over the river Tyne.
