Get Carter film locations part 6: ships on the Tyne

Published by Darron Toy on



our things meet one of the most characteristic emotion and the film is shot close the heads of two and ships going up the Tyne and the fog horns blasting and on a gray day it's on the scene with us for five seconds and then it moves quickly over on the bridge and it's a sort of introduction to the scene which is a film on the bridge yeah we have the three most characteristic non bridges with time ratings the swing bridge the the iron bridges is called the high level bridge bridges beyond that were in fact later editions although we can just see some of the strokes of a Reggie bridge of course that was not was rebuilt in 1982 I think somewhat characteristic shot even of Newcastle

Who would have thought it, ships being on the Tyne, and even built here. Thanks for nothing Maggie Thatcher, hope you rot in hell.

@AlienBusDriver Probably the other way round although I cannot remember when the Sydney Harbour Bridge was built! Both were built from steel from my home town Consett!
