Google seems to be taking ages releasing the streetview photos for this area. But your photo certainly proves they've been.

Yes Richard when I talked to the driver he though it might take about six months to get these pictures for street view put on that was 9 months ago. Perhaps their waiting to complete the whole of the UK photography first.

Possibly. The strange thing is, they did add a Streetview update on December 2nd just gone. But it was only 1 street that surrounded Bamburgh Castle. (The source; type in "Google Street View" in the Wikipedia search engine.)

I saw the Google street view car about a month ago. I was not quick enough to get turned around let alone getting a picture of it.

Hi JBM It was one of my neighbours that told me the Google Car was parked up at the bottom of our street. So was able to get out and take a few snaps and have a brief word with the driver. It took another 9 months or so for the images of the street to appear on Street view and two of them have me taking a photo of it.
