  • The Beautiful North of England 7th November 2012

My favourite Location, Jesmond Dene near Newcastle, it just keeps changing. In October there was an unusually heavy rain over night and the Ouseburn was swollen for a few days afterwards. More seriously there were buildings flooded and a block of apartments had the foundation piles exposed by the water eroding the ground around it. Sadly it was not possible to save the building and a lot of families now need to be rehoused. But back to the photograph, this small water fall usually has a single spout whose head is surrounded by rocks. Here the volume of water in motion have found two additional paths, and if anyone doubted the explanation of sedimentary rocks, the water is carrying with it lots of silt and sediment, hence its brown-ish colour.
