SILENCE fell across Tynedale on Sunday as old and young across the district paused to remember those who made the ultimate sacrifice for their country.
War memorials up and down the Tyne Valley are now adorned with the blood red of the iconic poppy after crowds turned out to pay their respects to the Fallen on Remembrance Day.

The Miners' Hall at West Wylam was officially re-opened after undergoing extensive renovation.
Built as a cinema with a sloping floor 15 years previously, a ladies' cloakroom had been added and the floor levelled to turn it into a dance hall.
The work cost £500, half of which came from the Northumberland Miners' Association.
