This angle faces from Newcastle upon Tyne to Gateshead.

Clearly seen in the back ground is The Baltic Flour Mill.

Opened as a working flour mill in 1950 by Rank Hovis with a silo capacity of 22,000 tonnes. It was equipped with the most modern and efficient machinery of the time although the building was actually designed in the late 1930s.
An animal food mill extension was added in 1957.
At its height the mill employed around 300 people and about 100 were still employed when the company closed the mill in 1981.

Total length 126 m (413 ft)
Width 8 m (26 ft)
Longest span 105 m (344 ft)
