The wall of an old mill, now returning to nature.
Wintrip's at Blaydon was a water-mill built in the 18th Century to process flints. (Flints arrived as ballast in ships returning to the Tyne, and were ground down to powder for use in the glass and pottery industries.)
It fell into disuse in 1914 when fancy tableware suddenly became less important in the overall scheme of things, and coke ovens were built on the site.
I find the remaining wall fascinating as it was obviously built on the cheap, using whatever materials – odd bricks, different sorts of stone – the builders could lay their hands on (= pilfer) from other projects.
Thanks for looking,
Moira

No 1 for me .. Very well composed. Although chris says the point is bad, it is concrete and should be lime Wink

V1 for me Moira - lovely combination of chunky and dainty - gorgeous shadows which for me work best without the bramble included SmileSmile

Thanks folks. V1 is my favourite by a long way, I included the others to 'fill out' the picture. Annette, there's something of everything here, even chunks of timber mixed in with bricks and stone.

A wonderful old wall, Moira, such a shame to see it fall into disrepair. It is wearing some beautiful natural shadows in these images, particularly V.1. Carol

No. 1 is definitely the one that gets the vote. Simple effective leaf shadows against a backdrop of complementary textures, detail and subdued colour.

I prefer the added splash of green in V2, Moira. Added to the blue/grey hue of the cement, it works for me.
They have made as much use of the morter or cement as possible building this wall, far easier than having to 'acquire' more bricks and stone.

Three fine shots each working very well, but I think, like Malc, I'd choose V2 as the most pleasing (oddly enough, as I'm not really a fan of green - but it brings the image together).

I bet its former owners would be mortarfied if they knew that this old mill had fallen into disrepair and nature had started to reclaim it. The shadows and textures are tremendous, you have such a keen eye for detail
