Old and new!

picture of Westoe Baptist Church, Westoe Road, South Shields

Westoe Baptist Chapel

This is the rather old (1881) Westoe Baptist Chapel in Westoe Road, South Shields. It resides next to a modern office bloc, South Tyneside House, which used to be used by the Borough Council. Oddly, whilst the church is still in plentiful use, the office block is not, and is now waiting for a purchaser.
Late afternoon sunshine about an hour before sunset.

I enjoyed your pics, some great shots, I like the back gate in B&W with the pegs in colour, over here they call them Clothes Pins
 
This is great. I just love it.
