About this page
This page show a river scene near where I consider 'home'.
It's a 360º panorama of the River Tyne at a place called Hayden Bridge in Northumberland and it's one of a series I produced on our return to the UK.
It's also unique in that it's the only example I know of a midi file using the sound of the Northumbrian Pipes on the web. (Correct me if you know otherwise). I couldn't find the right sound so I produced the midi file myself.
To view the panorama - well, you'll figure it out.
Here's your chance to see what The view's like at where the A69
crosses the River Tyne at Haydon Bridge in Northumberland.
This applet will take a while to start - it's a big file.
The other bridge you can see is the old single track one, built in 1773, now used as a footbridge. The picture was taken in October 2001. The yellow building, The Anchor Hotel, is now white.
You earn extra points for spotting the join in the picture (No it's not in the middle of the bridge).
You'll have to excuse the midi you are listening to. It's a piece called the Hexham Quadrille and it's my first ever attempt at producing a midi file supposedly played on the Northumbrian pipes.
