Out and About on Teesside

Post #1 by XS650 » Tue Apr 15, 2014 10:04 am

I work in the heavily industrialised Teesside area , we straddle the border of Yorkshire and Durham, in fact the river Tees is the border . Their is still a lot of that strange thing going on that British governments seem to want to kill MANUFACTURING.
Good news is there is also a lot of construction activity at the moment , long may both continue. :D

:wave: Hi Craig, believe it or not we are on holiday in County Durham and we took a spin around Redcar, Middlesbro' etc. Lots going on. not sure if its just cleaning up or infrastructure for the future. Interesting place and the people seem friendly. We went to the Beamish open air museum and took 2 days there ABSOLUTELY FAB! Recommend anyone to go there something for everyone, trains, mining, farming, old town......all set in about 1913. Get the vintage bus rides around it, you'll need to its about 200 acres worth of an exhibit!

Teesside is certainly not pretty but it is interesting , the steelworks pics were all taken from a public access road to the south Tees breakwater that amazingly in this day and age runs within 100 yards of the blast furnace.

JCB 3CX very common but there are not that many working pics of 3cx or 3c on the net considering their ubiquity.Building seen over rear bucket is Hartlepool Nuclear power sation with an oil drilling rig moored in front of it.
