Autumn colour #1
The Red Lion
West Boldon lies just to the south west of Biddick Hall in South Shields and despite the urban sprawl it still retains aspects of it’s old village atmosphere. These traits are most strikingly displayed near the head of Boldon Colliery with it’s collection of older buildings, pubs, and church close to the road leading to Sunderland.
It is here that I found this public house, The Red Lion, providing a massive infusion of colour with it’s planters and hanging baskets. Having suffered a terrible grey and damp summer they are trying their hardest to lighten the spirits as we head into autumn.
