20th December

We're heading up North soon for Christmas, and as well as seeing friends and family, Adam will be making his annual pilgrimage to the car park in Gateshead. Immortalised in the film 'Get Carter', condemned to be demolished, but given a stay of execution by Tesco's failure to get planning permission, this brutalist edifice was designed by Owen Luder in the 1960s.

We Live Here have produced a calendar as well as a poster celebrating it, as have People Will Always Need Plates. See more photos of the car park on Flickr.
