    Humford Woods

    Humford Woods. I dunno... I moved away in 1976.
  3. No, I'm someone elses.
  4. Image from a 2013 edition of Mike Kirkup's magazine Creeful Of Coals that Pat Robinson posted on the Bygone Bedlington group. The Creeful Of Coals image only had the initial of the lads christian names. Bygone Bedlington member Susan Barlow have, from their relatives, provide some christian names.
  5. Often referred to as the 'Council School'. Entry in https://communities.northumberland.gov.uk/005616.htm has the date c1916
  6. Fletcher = person who makes and sells arrows, so I suppose he helps bowmen slaughter others
  7. Not that I'm aware of. A fletcher makes arrows. However, Fletcher is a common family name so probably the presumed butcher's/fishmonger's surname.
  8. Is Fletcher an old word for butcher? I’m looking at the moon again x
  9. Sorry to intrude, you’re obviously not MY Jojo! Apologies Rx
  10. No apologies needed. I didn't find it to be either facetious or sarcastic. I learned a long time ago to look at details rather than the whole. As a child, I loved those "Find five differences" games that appeared im magazines and newspapers and could spend ages perusing all small details. That experience has been very valuable in my job as I learned to look at details, rather than the whole, at a very early age. Not too many years ago I collected 3 of the grandchildren from nursery and school every day and they stayed with me until mum and dad came home from work. One of their favourite g
  11. Born some 13 years later.
  12. That's 'fighting talk' Malcolm. Go get em!!
  13. Yup, I have politely suggested SOUTH EAST NORTHUMBERLAND, p👍lease x
  14. Yes it probably was but this one was definitely in my time, 1957 Brown's Furniture Shop (Courtesy of Evan Martin, Bedlingtonshire Remembered (publ. 1999) The People's History Ltd. There's no doubt that it is number 90. The finials of the neighbouring shop, Fletcher's, are exact. So, the Meadow Dairy has, at some time, been Fletcher's which I'm assuming, because of all the white tiling, is a butchers or a fishmongers. It's not the best of reproductions but it's the best I can do.
  15. Update on West Lea Cemetery. Work on the new drainage system started today. Good start more to do! video-1623851069.mp4
  16. Hope everyone has replied to the boundary consulatation..........If its insisted on calling the new constituency Ashington/Blyth then in effect we are subsumed. Sod that!
  17. Correction- maybe not boots, possibly knee socks. But skirt length definitely well above the knee, suggests? at least 60’s for the John Dawson photo? Of course, I’m frequently wrong 🙃 x
  18. @Alan Edgar (Eggy1948)Dear Sir, thank you very much for this lovely sequence of flowers, I’m very grateful 🤗xx
  19. Image from a 2013 edition of Mike Kirkup's magazine Creeful Of Coals that Pat Robinson posted on the Bygone Bedlington group. The Creeful Of Coals image only had the initial of the lads christian names. Bygone Bedlington members - Paul Tweddle, Pauline Ellis Broster & Susan Barlow have, from their relatives, provide some christian names.
  20. Found a couple of photos with J. E. BARNES shop at the Market Place and I think that is the Post Office in the top photo, left of J E Barnes as you look at the photo. Don't know the year these two photos were take. I spotted a postcard of the Market Place that John Ashford had posted on the Bygone Bedlington group and he was asking if any member could date it. All the estimates for the year were late 1950's to early 1960's. Enlarged the postcard and there was the Post Office next to Barnes :-
