    upload_2014-11-22_14-49-12.png I need to stop over the Sunday after next near South Shields, and then park up for the day near Sunderland. Considering a Brit Stop in Jarrow, for the Sunday night, but really could do with somewhere to leave the van, plus better half, plus dog for the day while I go to some meetings in Sunderland. Any ideas appreciated.

    Thanks

    Which pub is the Brit stop in Jarrow ?

    Do you want to take the MH into Sunderland ? Could you not park the MH somewhere nicer and get the Metro or bus into and back from Sunderland ? If so, what would other half and dog want to do? Go for walks or shopping ?

    You could stop at http://www.northumbrianleisure.co.uk/sandhaven_information.php on the Sunday and then get a bus from Shields town centre to Sunderland on the Monday.

    If you do that and want a curry of an evening then Ocean Rd is only a few minutes away with about 20 curry houses.

    Lovely sea front, beach at Fulwell, 10 mins on bus into Sunderland or Metro. Daughter lives there, her dogs in pic.

    Daytime parking facilities in South Tyneside Here. There are bus services to Sunderland from the sea front and town centre plus the metro from the town centre.

    Don't expect sympathy for self imposed afflictions.

    Working on it as we speak, so to speak, but not that we're actually speaking, but if we were I'd be working on it as we were speaking, so to speak if you get my drift Graham....
