Beautiful peaceful morning on the Tyne at this iconic site.
Whilst flying I got chatting to a couple of interesting gentlemen that had worked on the Staithes years ago when they were still in use.
The fallen section in the middle was from a fire I was unfortunate enough to be there for back in 2003. Enroute, a mate of mine said he thought the smoke was obviously a car fire
Some history on the Stithes if you want to know more: The Staithes - Dunston, Gateshead, Tyne & Wear.
