They've started to rip the corrugated iron roof off to reveal . . . another corrogated roof. The demolition of the former nightclub on New Bridge Street has begin in earnest.
On Saturday, the wall at the northern end of the building was breached, with the demolition proceeding from north to south towards the entrance portico and John Dobson House.
Of course, they won't be knocking down the front entrance and the listed John Dobson House next door.
Not an entirely random name for a blog, but close. I am not a goat herder - in the usual meaning of that word; nor does the Urban Dictionary definition apply to me either (for a decade at least): an extremely drunk male who having lost all self-respect and standards, loses his powers of discrimination when pulling females. It is said that Gateshead derives its name from a settlement near an early Tyne crossing where goats once roamed. The goats are long gone, but me - I like to roam these parts - or rather run - exploring new places, rediscovering old ones in and around Gateshead and Newcastle when I'm out jogging. This blog is a collection of my photos, thoughts, observations, rants, loves and hates about Newcastle and Gateshead.
