Wow .... that was impressive. The ferry terminal bit is wrong if I'm looking at the same gables as you .... Newcastle doesn't really have a ferry terminal, there is only one ferry that goes across the river to Stockton, you can see it further to the right. To the left of the top pic there used to be a Waterman's dock where my great great great grandfather used to ply his trade. Sadly he was also a pisspot and ended up a floater.

(Carrington is a suburb of Newcastle on the other side of the river with a highly regarded small ship yard. They specialise in tarting up super yachts and the like. The old floating dock is set for scrapping I believe.)
