It`s Nedderton Village ain`t it? So i think it must be Netherton Colliery way..

Excellent pic Carole, thanks for sharing.

Thanks for the kind message Jojo. Other people obviously know how to get their photos into their message but I couldn't see how to do it properly. Anyway, I hope Maureen finds it because I'm pretty sure it's what she's looking for.

You've got 10MB of upload space here.

If you need more simply PM. Some members already have 50MB or more.

The attachments box is below the posting window, it tells you there how much space you have left. If there are problems then I need to know.

If you need examples on how to do anything there's also [bB Code Help] button just below the posting window to the right. How to do most things in a post is pretty well illustrated there.

Thanks Threegee. I'm just beginning to work out how to use the website. I've got a few old photos of people at Netherton which I will upload.

You've really got to spend some time playing to see how it works. But there's no worry about messing-up as you can re-edit as many times as you can be bothered.

If you have tried and still have a problem PM me by clicking my name on one of my posts and selecting Send Message. Doing this for any user brings up the PM system in your own control panel with the person's name you want to contact already filled.

hi carole, I got the pic eventually. It is absolutely amazing. The old house hasnt changed much.....the black bits have been cleaned off and some new windows put in but otherwise it looks pretty much the same.

We have been trying since 1999 to get a pic of our house and i think you must have the only one in existance. so well done and thanks ever so much. Isnt it a shame that it was ever pulled down. I'd have had lots of fun restoring it to its former glory had it been left intact. The council, in their wisdom, wont let me replace the building. Such a shame that such a part of bedlington#s history is gone forever.

Anyway, thanks so very much. It means a lot to me and I'll stand you a pint if we ever run into you.

any more pics anyone has would be gratefully appreciated.

Hi Maureen,

I found your personal message first so I think you should have my message and email by now. I'm so pleased that I happened to have a photo that really means a lot to you. I inherited all my family photos from my Dad last year and I have been gradually going through them and scanning selected ones. When I came across my Mum's slide of the old Co-op at Netherton I admit that at first I wondered why on earth she had photographed a burned out building. Just as well that she did. I think you may well be right that it's the only photo in existence of the old Co-op.

I agree that it's a shame that the old Co-op building was pulled down. The whole building would have made a fantastic house, and it would have been a real labour of love to restore it. From the photo it looks as if it could have been saved, but I suppose it didn't make financial sense at the time. At least they kept part which had been the Manager's house so the memory of what used to be there hasn't completely gone. I feel quite choked that virtually all trace of the colliery and colliery housing has gone, as if all that history has been wiped away. Maybe people who had to work at the colliery wouldn't feel the same, I don't know.

I'm glad to have received your email address so that I could send you the other aerial photo which I don't think I should put up on the website - copyright, and all that.

I'd take you up on your offer of a drink (and buy you one in return) but I now live at the other end of the country and I don't get back to the North East very often. My last visits to Netherton were to my great aunt who spent the last few years of her life at Howard House when it was a Care Home. She died in 1999 and I haven't been to Netherton since then. Before she moved into Howard House she lived at Nedderton, opposite the old school. I used to get up to see her as often as I could, and take her out. After a trip out she always wanted to end up at the Shangri-La cafe at Bedlington.

If I turn up any more photos I'll make sure that I get them to you.

      All they want to do is cradle their newborn baby in their arms.
      But Bedlington parents Carly Walker and Ryan Murphy have been forced to watch from the sidelines as their daughter fights for her life.
      Little Ayda Faith Murphy was born prematurely on March 31, weighing just 4lbs, at Newcastle's Royal Victoria Infirmary.
      Rushed for her first operation straight after birth and another at just four days old, she's battling terrifying odds after being diagnosed with a series of incredibly rare birth defects.
      An almost unique variant of gastroschisis, a defect of the abdominal wall, has left her intestines pushing up into her chest - a condition doctors estimate is suffered by no more than 10 babies worldwide.
      Meanwhile, her heart appears to have flipped over and lies on the wrong side of her chest, while she's receiving oxygen from a machine due to her underdeveloped lungs.
