I used to live in Newcastle for 3 years (2006-2009) but I never knew that there was a big wheel on the Gateshead side. Very good photograph! Well done! Greetings from Poland! Ilona

Out of curiosity: Do you know if the wheel was there for just a short period of time (like a festival in Newcastle/Gateshead) or was it more long term?

thank you Ilona for your kind words and for viewing my gallery! the wheel was there for about two months if I recall correctly.
