    I was wondering what happened to this thread!

    The 15th is a busy weekend, 1 week away from the family holiday, and I'll be bringing the caravan out of storage and getting it ready - but I may still get a leave pass for Sunday - watch this space! :D

    The problem with a 10am start on a Sunday is the first train don't arrive untill 12:12 :(, if I can come I'll have to catch up with you (unless your still in the Centurion :D :D)

    If you can get a pass-out it would be great :D

    Trains can be a bit pants on a Sunday. Where are you coming in from? If you can't make it until later I'll let you know where we'll be at lunchtime. I'll be posting a rough itinerary soon.

    What time do you think you can make it? It should be no problem for you to catch up with us a little later, Newcastle is not a huge city.

    Broached the subject with SWMBO and I didn't get any major objections :) so it's looking good. I'm comming from Grantham.

    Here's the plan....

    Meet at 10am at The Centurion in the Central Station. Then onwards into the Toon. Landmarks as follows:

    Centre for Life
    Gallowgate
    Leazes Park
    University
    Civic Centre & Haymarket
    Laing Gallery
    Ouseburn (possibly swift half in the Cluny)
    Quayside & Bridges
    Baltic & Sage
    Grey Street
    Gate
    Stowell Street (chinatown)
    Pub!

    Hopefully there will be something in there for everyone. If anyone has other suggestions let me know and I'll try to fit them in.

    Could everyone who is interested please drop me a PM so I can give them my mobile number.

    Well it stayed dry for most of the day which was a relief! I think we all managed to get some canny shots. Look out for the murderous pigeon :eek:

    It was nice to meet you all yesterday. Hope your train journey back South went well Chris.

    Here are a few random shots I took during the day.

    Not copious amounts but we did manage a swift pint in the Waterline when we had some lunch. I think I need to organise the next one based around the theme of "pub interiors" ;)

    Ditto... and thanks Paul, I got back okay and on time.

    I've downloaded my shots to the computer, now I need to spend some time sorting through them.
    It was a thouroughly enjoyable day out (not enough beer mind, but hey... you can't have everything :rolleyes:) shame on those of you who never made it :D
