Phoenix Sculpture, Dormanstown Primary

Geotag Icon Show on map

This Phoenix Sculpture by Steve Tomlinson stands outside the new Dormanstown Primary Academy
Phoenix, Dormanstown Primary
As stated on the plaque it was donated by the Learning Team from the Newcastle Theatre Royal, presumably when the school was rebuilt, hence the Phoenix.

I previously captured the old school, previously known as Clara Lady Dorman being demolished in August 2011

Warrenby Stench Pipe ?

Prompted by a comment about yesterdays stench pipe, I realised I had photographed another over a year ago and never used the photo.
Warrenby Lamp-post
I think at the time as I was undecided whether it was a stench pipe or an old lamp.

Its possibly shown in the right background of this old photo and theres nothing on top to indicate a lamp (although it could be a telegraph pole related to the railway line behind)

Redcar Ghostsigns

Around the top of Redcar Lane are four old painted signs, none of which are stunning examples, but I thought I should record them all before they disappear.
