Cold places

The weather forecast predicted bright sunshine, but, late morning, it was devilish dark at Roker.

Victoria Viaduct, near Fatfield, with ice washing in on the tide.

More ice on the river Wear at Barmston Ferry/Cox Green. I seem to recall reading in a history of Sunderland how massive ice flows coming down the river had swept moored (wooden) ships out to sea. Can't remember the date, early 1800s perhaps.

The mothballed Leamside line as it passes through Washington.
