No, it`s taken from the bank leading down to the Haven beach.
The layout has changed . Most of the buildings on the left are long gone. But maybe you are picturing the outer main gate and entrance. This picture shows the buildings inside the grounds.This is the actual Priory. If you put "Tynemouth Priory" into Google and view the images, you will see what I mean.
Ah! So this must be taken from the sea end. Yes?
No, it`s definitely the Priory. The gravestones are still there and they are to the right and rear of the building.
There are 2 or 3 Northumbrian Kings buried in the cemetary.
I have some other photos of the ruin and they are identical. This image is also available on stereoview..
Hello , The Wakefield link has thrown some doubt on whether its Tynemouth! If I recall correctly Tynemouth had some very early grave stones in the yard. Certainly pre-photography. Just a thought Paul! Cheers, Geoff.
Hello Geoff, Yes, i think around that date. It was on a website for sale and entitled Wakefield Prison, but I thought, I recognise that, it`s just down the road.
Hi! Paul, This looks quite early, 1860s I should think. Bit cold at Tynemouth recently! Regards, Geoff Lowe.
