  2. A thought I have is Bill married a lady from Blyth(I'm fairly sure) and I knew her as Penny and they may have lived on Princess Louise Road, Blyth. I'm telling you this in case you decide to search for Bills father via Bills wedding certificate. I'm not aware of any children from the marriage. Bill now lives in Thailand or one of the other far eastern countries but have no contact details. Scott and Neave still have a Plumbing and Heating shop in Blyth. Bill sold it to the existing employees so they may know if Bill had a middle name. I'm sure the lady who now owns it will know because she wor
  3. Hi Alan Yes i found the picture thanks again, looking at that picture and the one i have, i must have the school photo which is one of just me on my own if they did them then because they are so similar. Regards
  4. @Keith Batey - did you find your class photo in the Barrington album?
  5. Thank you very much, Andy, very grateful x
  6. Many thanks for this Mr Dickson, but I think the things I’m asking about are in the next field- they are concrete about 18” high and approx 5 feet in diameter, there’s a dark green door on top looks big enough for a man to get in. The green cabinets beside it is about 4 feet high and ?8-12 inches deep. I must remember to take my phone with me next time to take a pic. Regards, R

  8. Thanks, I've made a note of him, and will see if I can find any info on him. I know that apart from my direct relatives there was a second family of Neave living nearby, so he might be one of mine or of this second family.
  9. Thank you so much Andy for your help👍
  10. I have cleaned up personal info from this topic
  11. Oldwulf. I've lived in Bedlington all my life and only came across one Neave family. This is what I know which may or may not be of any use to you. I was an apprentice plumber from 1964 to 1970. One of the qualified tradesman was a Bill(William?) Neave about 24yrs old in 1964 who lived at Stakeford from being young until he moved to Blyth and became one half of Scott and Neave. He was an only child. His parents lived in Stakeford Lane, Stakeford within 100yds of the Half Moon pub. I'm sure his father was from my area. As I said this may not be of any use to your research because
  12. @lilbill15- I don't know so I asked Alan Dickson (ex Barrington fella that used to take his dog for a walk way) and he replied :- Alan Dickson Its the old Choppington Clayhole Alan, they are pipes to expel any gas as the Clayhole was used as a landfill site some years after it closed, Think the metal hut contains a pump for any water build up below ground, You can hear running water if you stand beside it.
  13. On many census returns these are registered as halves- 17, 17½, 18, 18½ etc.. It can be confusing at times.
  14. Oldwulf - Rothesay Terrace house numbers are 1 to 117. The top section are houses, 117 to 108, and I think the first three also houses. Those in between were upstairs and downstairs flats with the upstairs flats having the letter A after the number eg. 107 & 107A etc. The only old photo, where the house numbers could be worked, I have seen is an old postcard. There are a few photos of the Bedlington A pit available if you wanted to see them. Rothesay Terrace on the left as you look at this postcard :-
  15. Just notice there is no original photo, without names and numbers, so this is the one that Susan Humble posted on the Barrington, Barnt' n memories and stuff!! Facebook group :-
  16. Keith - there is no facility for a member to delete full topics or comments within topics. If you want anything deleted you will have to ask, via comment of Message, to delete. I see from a comment above you lived at Barrington so I had a check in the Barringtop CP School album we have in the Gallery. This is a direct link to the album that I believe you are in - Class 1 1960 :-#
  17. Less of the BH, young man! Equality rules in this household so OH will do nicely thank you (that's unless you're referring to my OH's BH , of course).

  21. Hello, while rummaging in Google for info on the concrete ?caps in the fields between the remains of Netherton colliery and Choppington I found this chain of chatter.
