Get Carter Carpark - 53/365

  • Description

    Trinity Square is a shopping centre in Gateshead, Tyne & Wear, particularly noted for its Brutalist car park designed by Owen Luder. The concrete structure, which dominates the skyline of the town, has a prominent role in the 1971 film Get Carter, so is often referred to informally as the Get Carter Car Park. The car park and the rest of the Trinity Square complex is currently in the early stages of demolition. I know a lot of people say it is an eyesore, but it's been part of the skyline all my life, and I see it even from Heaton almost every day. I will miss it to be honest!

Derwent Tower in Dunston, Tyne and Wear, is another by Owen Luder. Expect me to cover that in the 365 ;-)
