What is this? a tall tower or a blemish?

Could be Penshaw monument, visible from most places around the NE area.

I think it could be the water tower on Cleadon Hills

This looks like Souter Point Lighthouse.

The hills behind look too high, the North york moors look a better fit.

I think that this looks like the lift tower at Marsden Grotto, near South Shields. What does anyone else think?

Steam rising from the top of cooling towers.

I've just been looking at some other cover of Whitburn Colliery, and there are cooling towers on the east side of the mine. I'm happy with the details. We'll update the catalogue and post the new location data here in due course.

Image EAW032796 is taken in the same area. It is easier to identify Marsden bay and Rock.

I agree with Class31 on this being off Marsden Grotto and Souter Point Lighthouse. I think the 'cooling towers' are actually Whitburn Colliery winding heads. According to this website http://www.merchantnavyofficers.com/lof1.html she was completed on this very day by the Furness Shipbuilding Co. on the Tees

As stated on eaw032796 probably North east coast off Teeside

So could be Redcar power station
