Wharton Arms


Recommended Posts

I have been in there a few times recently, and slaked my thirst with a few refreshing pints of well-kept Strongbow. I'm becoming quite accustomed to the place now, and the addition of Suicidal Tendencies on the jukebox only adds to the atmosphere.

Jukebox?....! Dinna tell me the aad juke is still gaanin strong.......naa....it's gotta be a newer one!

Aav got pics of thi juke that was in there,what was tekkin' in thi mid-sixties![mind,it was accidental,that the juke got itsel' in thi pics!]

Anybody mind o' big Derek that had thi Wharton in the 'sixties?

Am a teetotaller aal me life,but Derek kindly let me and me marra's practice wa repertoire in the big room on neets when it wasn't

being used.[in the days when a was a lang-haired rocker from Bedltn!][noo aam a baldy-aad biker from Bedltn.....some things nivvor change......!]

A remember it being a cosy little place,and in the days when we were a proper mining community,aal thi pubs and clubs were usually full.

A think,the aad juke was a Bel-Ami,but a wud hae ti sort me pics oot ti confirm if aam reet.

So what sort is in there noo?

      All they want to do is cradle their newborn baby in their arms.
      But Bedlington parents Carly Walker and Ryan Murphy have been forced to watch from the sidelines as their daughter fights for her life.
      Little Ayda Faith Murphy was born prematurely on March 31, weighing just 4lbs, at Newcastle's Royal Victoria Infirmary.
      Rushed for her first operation straight after birth and another at just four days old, she's battling terrifying odds after being diagnosed with a series of incredibly rare birth defects.
      An almost unique variant of gastroschisis, a defect of the abdominal wall, has left her intestines pushing up into her chest - a condition doctors estimate is suffered by no more than 10 babies worldwide.
      Meanwhile, her heart appears to have flipped over and lies on the wrong side of her chest, while she's receiving oxygen from a machine due to her underdeveloped lungs.
