Rooftop level

Chimney pots and rooftops of Newcastle Upon Tyne

I half expected Dick van Dyke and a collection of Chimney sweeps to come dashing across the rooftops when i took this image. I think the photograph shows the true diversity of the architecture in Newcastle. Old is mixed with new and yet the industrial heritage of the city hasn't been compromised too much.

The thing i love the most are the high rail bridges than span over the streets below. There aren't that many places in the UK where the trains rattle above your head as you walk along the street. The bridge on the far right of the image takes trains right into Newcastle central station, a classic Victorian railway station with beautiful architecture.
