Mr Monkey goes from Quay to Sea, 14th December

"I wouldn't want to live next to that ventilation unit"

Mr Monkey looking at a Tyne Tunnel ventilation chimney Mr Monkey looking at tugs on the Tyne

Mr Monkey spotted a huge inverted cone which told him the Coventina was crossing the Tyne Tunnel. The cone is part of the ventilation system. A little further on Mr Monkey saw two Svitzer tugs waiting for something to need towing in or out of the Tyne.

You can read about the tunnel at the Tyne Tunnels website and about the tugs at the Svitzer website.
