Good Morning Everyone,
I have shown photographs from Beadnell before but have not concentrated on the mechanics of the harbour.
Although Beadnell is very much a tourist location now, there is still a small scale fishing industry. (The harbour is privately owned after being gifted to the local fishermen in 1947 by the owner Sir John Craster.) The pulley, I would presume is for lifting large catches of fish from the boats. I never saw it in operation!
In the background you will notice some strange buildings. These are the old lime kilns. They had a short history, being built in 1798 but by 1827 the coal and lime industry had peaked and was diminishing in the area, and the prominent lime-kilns were left to rot. They have become listed buildings, which means they are of special historical interest and are protected by law. A listed building may not be demolished, extended, or altered without special permission from the local planning authority, which typically consults the relevant central government agency.
I hope you have enjoyed this brief trip to Beadnell.
Have a good w/e, Bev :-)

I have friends living in Northumberland and they keep saying come up and photograph the coast here, and when I see places like this I can see why. Full of tranquillity and old charm in this original composition. You captured the history and atmosphere of this little haven perfectly.
Have a good weekend - B.
Yep! Dull and miz down here today too!

J'aime beaucoup cette composition.On sent bien que l'on est dans un petit port de pêche. Le gréement est vieux et rouillé. J'aime bien cette structure de pierres à l'arrière plan.

I reading that this old building or a fortress, would disappear, nothwithstanding a lovely building, we see people nice in the sun against the wall.
The small crane in foreground is absolutely industrial archeology
Colours and structure make these picture attractive.
Excellent composition, excellent captured.
Nice picture with pleasant colours.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice weekend,

You were right about the reflections we see as photographers, trully before - did not noticed them.
A marvelous perspective over the ancient small marina, diagonal approach with view stretched beyond and over the more modern houses, in contrast.
Old ladies enjoy the sunny summer day, sit on the banch facing the sun-rays .

This seems to be a very nice harbour and you show us a very pleasant picture. I tried to prolong my trip to Beadnell with the help of Google but the yellow man could not reach this harbour. The road was closed by a gate. But I thisnk this picture shows the most essential parts of Beadnell.

I like the way you use the fish hauling rusty pulley to create FG interest. Excellent detailing all over the frame. The old lime kiln building adds so much more to this composition. It is good that it has been protected by law. Good shot from the harbor with natural light and colours. Thanks for sharing.
