The sail bridge featured in the roundabout post a couple of days ago is where this was taken. The green dots lead to a green Northumberland University in the middle and then back to green dots. In the winter, this bridge is kinda slippery with frost very early in the morning.

chalk road, newcastle, uk

Just a couple of alley’s north of the Pilgrim Street Roundabout is this little alley that has been lovingly decorated with chalk. Every so often it gets wiped clean and then the messages and drawings creep back up onto the walls.
