"Byker" Grove. Yes, this is the Grove miles away from Byker in the heart of South Benwell. Check out officious insecurity man on left of picture screaming "NO PHOTOS!".
Corner Shops on Benwell Lane. Utterly decrepit shops have been in this state for over 10 years. This is directly opposite the "Byker" Grove set.
Typical Shopping Centre. These are the type of shops you will find in any similar district.
Glen Cafe. Wonderful greasy spoon in the heart of Benwell. Closed at time of photograph-hope it is still up and running.
Condercum Road. Leading up to the West Road. Name indicates Roman activity nearby and indeed the West Road follows the course of Hadrian's Wall.
Shops on Adelaide Terrace. Low rent shops on small high street.
The Mitre. Off Benwell Lane lies a big old house where they film "Byker" Grove. Notice Zenith North logo on the sign-that's the production company responsible.
