White Willow Tree

Trees and Woodland

These particular photos were taken from various places along the River Don embankment, Jarrow, Gateshead, Boldon woodlands, Newcastle Upon Tyne, Jesmond, Durham City and the Great North Forest.

The main photo at the top of the Page is of a White Willow tree that is known to be more than 100 years old (just the way I’m feeling at this moment in time).

As to where it is… All I can say is it can be seen some-where along The banks of the River Don between Jarrow and Boldon Colliery.

When it was published in our local rag weekly it was pointed out to avoid subjected vandalism the exact location of the tree should not be disclosed. It was felt that those people with a genuine interest in Mother Nature would know it when they see it.


Attended state schools (St Peters & Paul's) Spent my last 4 years attending St Cuthbert Secondary. Worked as a warehouse manager 25 years plus. Spent 16+ years attending Newcastle Uni and North Tyneside College. (Humanistic approaches in Counselling). Now Qualified. Don’t have many dislikes apart from people who try to be something they’re not (conveniently forget where their roots are), and I do not suffer fools easily, or people that over talk others. I eat and drink to live, love all kinds of music, places of interest, photography, Singing, computing, reading (mostly supernatural/horror, James Herbert / Stephen King), and swimming.
