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.

Old Snooker Club New Bridge Street

This is a view of the old snooker club from the Manors pedestrian bridge over the central motorway. The building which spans New Bridge Street has been empty for some time and has been colourfully adorned with paint. Not sure if this is graffiti or an art installation but it looks good. A welcome addition to a pretty drab building.
