Hello Maureen,

I think this might be what you're looking for. The photo was taken by my Mum in 1963 when visiting relatives who used to live at Howard House.

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.

i never found the rats yet denzel but they say, on a quiet night, if you are very still, there are a few ghosts that haunt the corridors. maybe the ghosts frightenned all the rats away.

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.

    • A big-hearted donation by one of South East Northumberland’s largest employers has enabled local football club, Bedlington Terriers FC, to provide its players, staff and visitors with rapid emergency response should it ever be needed.
      Lynemouth Power Station has gifted the community club with a life-saving heart defibrillator which will now be installed at the Welfare Park ground. If deployed within three to five minutes of a cardiac arrest, such equipment could potentially increase the chances of someone surviving a heart attack from six to 74 per cent. Each minute without CPR and defibrillation also reduces a patient’s survival rate by between seven and ten per cent.*
      The Northern League Division Two club is home to seven teams and over 80 footballers from senior players to an under 6 ‘tots’ team. Along with daily training sessions and match attendances, the club sees hundreds of people visiting the ground on a weekly basis therefore the defibrillator has been very well received by all.
      Rowan Edwards, Commercial Director of Bedlington Terriers FC, commented, “This is a vital piece of first aid equipment and we are extremely grateful to Lynemouth Power Station for their kind donation. Given the number of on-site staff, players training each week and visitors to the ground, it is essential that our trained staff have instant access to life-saving equipment in case of emergencies. It will mean a lot to everyone here at the club as well as the local community, so we’re very grateful for the power station’s support.”
      Janet Mole from Lynemouth Power Station added, “Having these devices installed in popular public places and venues is so important, so rather than just donate to the fundraising effort, we decided to purchase the equipment outright on behalf of the club. As a local employer, it is important that community initiatives like this are well supported so we’re delighted to hand over the defibrillator to all at the club.”
