Keith Cockerill's River Wear Slideshows

Relaxing photographic slideshows depicting the River Wear from Chartershaugh Bridge to beyond the Wildfowl Centre.

If you've ever enjoyed an hour or two along the banks of the Wear, you'll love Keith's pictures.

The following slideshows are too large to be housed on this website, so Keith has provided a link for you to follow.  They will only work on Windows based PCs and you'll need to download & install a small piece of Photodex software - available from his (external) website.  I did it by saving the file to my 'download' folder and then double-clicking it to activate the installation.  Once the software was installed, I re-loaded Keith's slideshow page and the titles appeared, as shown below.  Depending on how your computer and its security software are set up, you may need to click the 'Activate Photodex Presenter' link and/or 'Allow the Photodex Plug-in to activate'.

Keith's third slideshow, 'Around The Riverside at Washington' has a 'Then & Now' theme and, like the previous two, is best viewed fullscreen.

To see these slideshows, please read everything above and then click the link below.  You will leave this website.
