Odd tops No. 2

Stags Head, South Shields

The Stags Head

The Stags Head in Fowler Street, South Shields, is the second in the series of “odd tops” which show the town’s history. As you can see the building was completed 111 years ago as the town expanded away from it’s small centre around the Market Place and the river.

This is certainly the smallest public house in South Shields with (originally) one room downstairs and one room upstairs, along with a traditional cellar. A smaller room was added at a later date to the rear of the ground floor.

A Photoshop action has been used to create the tint and tone effect, which I hope shows off the golden coloured stags head to good effect.

Camera details; Pentax K100D, 82mm lens, 1/90second, f5.6, iso 200

  1. OK maths isn’t my strong point Curly, but surely that’s 111 years not 101? 😉 Or are you like me, someone who had a great 90’s and has found the 00’s a little bit of a disappointment?!!!

  2. I like this building in it’s own right as it is, in my opinion, the only building with real character and age on that side of Fowler Street between the old Midland Bank and Winchester Street
