Tree of lights

LED tree, Jarrow

LED tree, Jarrow

From a distance this looks spectacular, it forms part of the overall Christmas decorations in South Tyneside and is situated on a roundabout at the top of Ellison Street in Jarrow (which is just three miles from South Shields.) All parts of the borough, South Shields, Jarrow, Hebburn, Boldon Colliery, Whitburn, and Cleadon) are now adorned with a colourful display of Christmas lighting. This piece of art was actually hired by the local council to act as a “gateway” to Jarrow’s shopping centre and consists of a wire frame with thousands of low voltage led lights.

Camera details; Pentax K100D, 35mm lens, 1/20 second, f4, iso 400, velbon tripod.

  8. […] Street in Jarrow (at it’s junction with the A185) was decorated with a very nice looking LED illuminated tree, it blew over in the wind. I understand that South Tyneside Council leased the tree for the duration […]
