South Shields market

South Shields Market

A busy Saturday on the market, it always seems busier when the weather is better, and all of the stalls are occupied. We can see St. Hilda’s Church in the background, where you can pop in for a cup of tea or coffee on market days. We have had a market here in South Shields for hundreds of years, regular markets are held on Mondays and Saturdays, and a “flea market” is held on Fridays, every week of the year, whatever the weather!

Camera details: Pentax K100D, 55 mm lens, 1/180 second, f8, iso 200
