I ran past this building today, which is just across the Tyne Bridge on the Gateshead side and I thought "didn't this used to be a pub". I then started racking my brains to remember what it was called. As I got user I saw this image of a cow on the door "aha! The Dun Cow!" (at least I think it was - I haven't checked yet).
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.
