Just a bit of pedantry
Just a small point, the Cobalt is not in Newcastle. It's in North Tyneside,
Different local authority to Newcastle City Council, different MP and about 9 miles away. Apart from that, not bad geography for a Southerner..
It's right next to the old site of the Siemens Chip Plant http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk/143085.stm A complete farce, but that's a story for another day. ( There's your I.T. Angle )
Also on the site is a big data centre https://firstname.lastname@example.org,-1.5011163,3a,75y,219.29h,83.9t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1sJ1vtom__B9stpe2RZ7mr4g!2e0!7i13312!8i6656 ( Another I.T. Angle ) that apparently local footballers invested into. Couldn't possibly comment on the tax implications.
Segwaying (sp?) nicely into your bit about Viz Comic and Farcebook: From Roger's Profanisaurus 3rd Edition
" She took me all the way to the Billy Mill roundabout!" Said roundabout is about 2 mins drive from Cobalt.
It's also very close to the mouth of the River Tyne & a monument to Lord Collingwood, who some argue actually won The Battle of Trafalgar, as Nelson had taken an early bath.
Finally & best of all, it's very close to HITS Towers. About 5-8 mins away or an hour if you drive past as everyone who works at Cobalt leaves.
