Harbour at night

The Groyne, South Shields

The Groyne and harbour

Here we see the harbour in South Shields, both piers and lighthouses, as well as the old Groyne pier belonging to the Port of Tyne Authority. This is where the River Tyne flows into the North Sea and it is much of the view from the dining room of the Littlehaven Hotel that I posted about two days ago. The Groyne marked a rocky danger point for vessels entering the Tyne and many ships have been grounded here over the centuries.
