One of the most ambitious memorials in the area, this monuement consists of a tall, free standing cenotaph set in paving and backed by a curved and inscribed stone wall which forms the boundary of a small park to the rear.

The description of this image has been produced by the group. To listen to an audio of this description watch the video below.



This picture shows an elegant area of Gateshead, where new civic buildings were built in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

At the road junction in the centre of the picture is the large War Memorial. The main road is Durham Road. The road leading off to the left of the War Memorial is Prince Consort Road.

The large building on Prince Consort Road is the Shipley Art Gallery, built between 1914 and 1917. Next along the road are the Education Offices, built in 1897. At the top of the picture is the new Public Library, built in 1925. The Art Gallery and the Library are still in use today and are well worth visiting.
