Recommended Posts

Does anyone know what year this photo was taken.

Have a look at other old photos in the places section of the gallery under Old photos of Bedlington

That looks to me like a mid 70`s photo..not sure though. Maybe Threegee will have a better idea.

It pre-dates 1975 and it's certainly not the early or mid 1960's. So... 1971 sounds like a fair guess.

1983 sorry got dates mixed up 10 year out

Are you sure? I'm told that Clevva Clothes had moved by 1975, and that it was a fruit & veg shop by then. Difficult to tell from the cars, too few and too far away.

But... Greggs looks suspiciously modern, and I think it was originally beside Barclays. Pity there wasn't a bit more to the left or right.

Up until the present day "brand imaging" it had always been the Howard Arms, at least within living memory.

I'm wrong about Greggs being beside Barclays (extreme right edge of photo), it was Carricks. For a while we had two bakery chains there.

And, I'm still being told that Clevva Clothes wasn't still there by the late 1970's - very puzzling!

What you can say with reasonable certainty is that it's a high-summer shot taken late morning. Maybe June or July. That there are virtually no cars around at that time of day - except a bit of passing traffic - , few people, and the shops look shut, says it must be a late Sunday morning. Get the year right and you can almost pinpoint the date and time!

might 'ave been wednesday morning when everyone done off to Morpeth for market day,still like that today,not the market,but a ghost town on wednesdays is Bedlington.Come to think of it it's like that the rest of the week as well.

Carricks, Greggs and Bakers oven all the same company. Greggs!

Cars suggest mid seventies

Looking at the red telephone box when did they disappear from the street?

Don't you remember the GMTV where they had an alien in Greggs one morning? Maybe he just had a sausage roll and a stottie?

    • 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.”
