The field was full of big-horned cows,grazing among the long grass in the field.We never came to any harm as that became a way of life for all our young lives until we were in our early teens! 

The thing is,I canna remember exactly when they first mowed the field to have the Miner's Picnic there,cos it used to be held at Ashington.


@HIGH PIT WILMA - Malcolm Robinson posted the last programme from the picnic held in 1989 and in it was a list of where all the previous picnics were held, and in which town. The first one in Bedlington was 1952 :-
