Double Row, Bedlington

Recommended Posts

The reason I was searching for Double Row was the Barrington group were trying to establish how the rows, in Barrington, got their name. My 'fuzzy' memory came up with a thread that said I had been told (think it was by an uncle that married a lass from Barrington) that Double Row was the pit row that had an extra, 2 instead of 1, room down stairs. Searche on here just in case the explanation for the name was in one of HPW's stories.

Bedlington 'A' pit had North Row to the north of the pit and South Row to the South. Shop Row I assume had a shop but never new one in my time, 1953-60, passing and playing in that row when I went to Barrington school.

 As you note 3g the naming of the Dr Pit - New South Row - doesn't appear to be logical. Do any of the old Dr Pit rows have a logic, that can be proved, to their names?

Shiney Row - Doctor Terrace - Telephone Row - New South Row - Cross Row & North Terrace.0

Barrington rows - the thoughts on the first rows built - those on the an 1859 :-

1) Chapel Row - was that because of the chapel? 

2) Blacsmiths Row - was that where the Blacksmiths were housed?

3) School Row - next to the original school in the village? 

4) Stone Row - ?

5) Double Row - was that because they had extra rooms, or just because it ran parallel with Chapel Row?

Then the next rows to be built, on a 1924 map :-

6) Victoria Row - after Queen Victoria?

7) Alexandra Row - after Princess Alexandra of Denmark ?

8) Freehold Row - ??

9) Railway Row - next to the railway?

10) Middle Row - it wasn't in the middle of Barrington but between Railway

and finally

11) Office Row - was that where the white & blue collar pit workers were housed, next to the pit managers house?

@Liz Moore - any member of this group, when signed in, can take a copy aof any of the photos that are posted within this group. 

I don't use a handheld/mobile device but from my PC, using the mouse, if you left click on the image it enlarges and then if you right click the system gives you a number of options of which one is 'Save image' and selecting that option you get the option to name the file the system is about to download to your device.

If you would prefer the info emailed to you then the best way, so as not to broadcast your email address etc. to the rest of the world is to send a Personal Message, by selecting the envelope logo at the top right of the page you can send a personal message to me - Alan Edgar (Eggy 1948) - with your email address and I will email you whatever info you request that is available on this site. :)  .

That small photo of Double Row, Barrington, is the only one I can remember having seen on this group but there is at least one on the Facebook group -  Barrington, Barnt' n  memories and stuff!!

@Liz Moore - forgot to mention there is a site that might be of some help in your research = The Durham Mining Museum site. It lists info on all the mines in the Northumberland and Durham counties.

This is a link to the page on the Barrington colliery and then an extract from the Barrington Colliery page :-

    • 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.
