My MIL lived and played there, Joan Dobson then, she remembers melting her chocolate by the heat of the forge, c1935

Other known occupants of Wilson's yard were

McPake

and two sisters 

 

Mum is struggling with her memory now, so I am trying to put together a family history/tree for her. Her father Jimmy worked in the cooperative butchers for many years starting at Bedlington Station, his family lived in South Row.

There are a couple of photos of South Row, at Bedlington Station that have done the rounds on the Facebook group sites. South Row used to be two rows of houses, one at either side of the entrance to the 'A' pit off Station Road. All the photos I have seen are of the East side/Bottom end that was closest to the railway crossing and station. @John Fox (foxy) provided the photo of the demolition of Soth Row in 1974.5984c5b50812c_BedStation1921.thumb.jpg.ce293d5923e9e950413ff32517789554.jpg

This map published 1924 shows  the two parts to South Row.

    • A brand new service will offer life-long support to people with autism in South Shields.
      The new 'autism hub', opened by the mayor and mayoress of South Tyneside this month, will offer occupational therapy, mental health help and peer support for people with the condition throughout the area.
      Councillors say they're responded to a need created by an above-average number of people with an autism diagnosis in the borough, as parents, carers and those with a diagnosis told the council they needed more local support.
      One of those who can't wait to start using the new hub is little Jak Brunton, and his mum Jay.
      For Jak, who turns four on Monday, regular sessions at a Toby Henderson Trust centre in Bedlington have been a lifeline, helping him connect with his family and supporting them as they understand his needs.
      The Jarrow family travel at least once a week to Northumberland for invaluable one-to-one sessions, so the opening of a hub close to home in South Shields will make a huge difference to their lives.
