Places for People and Urban Splash, the joint venture partnership redeveloping Smith’s Dock in North Shields, have announced the completion of a ‘Fab’ new show house at the scheme – with doors to the new property opening this weekend.
It’s amazing what you see some days on the Tyne; from cruise ships to cargo liners, there’s always something interesting sailing by. Stand there with your smartphone on any given day and you’ll be treated to hundreds of postcard-worthy shots.
