Many thanks for the comments /votes on my last upload, a lot of members asked about the watch house behind the sun worshippers well I thought I would give it a view on it's own.

The Grade II-listed Watch House has been the HQ of the Tynemouth Volunteer Life Brigade since the 19th Century The Watch House was built in 1887.The Brigade Watch House Museum is packed full of fascinating and unique artefacts of the Brigade's history, ranging from the Ship's bell from one of the Shipwrecks that led to the creation of the Brigade in 1864 to a picture of Her Majesty The Queen visiting the Brigade in October 2005. Furthermore behind every picture and relic is a captivating story about how it links into both the Brigade's past and present role as a Voluntary Life Brigade on the North Tyneside Coastline.

I dont know Dave I think it was just people enjoying the sun. but it could have been!!. It's getting done this year so I believe a complete make over so I'm told.


THE historic home of a lifesaving charity is set for a major revamp.

The Grade II-listed Watch House has been the HQ of the Tynemouth Volunteer Life Brigade since the 19th Century.

The site, which includes a museum at Spanish Battery, in Tynemouth, is in need of renovation and proposals have been put together to carry out a string of improvements.

If the project is approved, a new educational space could be created inside, better kitchen and toilet accommodation would be provided, and external cladding will be improved. The building would also be rewired.

The plans have been lodged with North Tyneside Council. However, sources of funding are still being explored. It is estimated the refurbishment could cost around 600,000.

Nice crisp documentary shot of the establishment, captured in bright sun and with a good balance of sunlit and shaded areas, John.

I presume the two small 'turrets' on the roof once housed bells, John? Though what their purpose was...
A truly fine old bbuilding. Good to see that it has survived so long.
