This series of steps leads up from The Side towards a gated wall.
This area of Newcastle near the river, was part of the original crossing point and lead up in to the upper parts of the city.
It is now also famous for the Side Gallery , a little gem of both a building and photographic gallery.
The wear of the steps bear witness that the remains of houses and business that once thrived here, once had happier days.
