North Shields - Clifford's Fort etc

Only the damaged walls of the fort remain, and, despite cycling past numerous times, I had not previously noticed this attractive piece of artwork on the riverside. I have carried out some "restoration" of the stained glass in photoshop, as it is in pretty poor condition. Eagle eyed observers might have picked up that what you see here is a mirror image of the actual object, but, this way, you can read what it says!

This lady threw out the remains of a fish and chip lot, which caused the local bird population to go beserk. Surprisingly the pigeons seemed to get the lion's share. Perhaps the gulls are feeding them up for Xmas?
