I've never been in for ages Pete, but since they re-routed the road it is in a cul-de-sac now and it dos'nt get any passing trade as there is no through traffic in East Sleekburn as such, but I should think that it has changed a bit since 1965. I know the landlord bought some land off my brother to build a house on a couple of years ago and he has done nothing with it yet so he must still be content in the Havelock.

I have noticed that it is a cul-de-sac when I have been up there and because of that I have never ventured up there to see if the Havlock was still there. I would think that any visitors to the area would not even know that there was a pub there and just contiue following the road. Pity really because I remember it used to get quite full in the sixties.

Scroll down to 'latest sighting'.

Mercuryg, other than the link has there been any other sighting in and around the golf course or has the trail gone cold. About 25 years ago I was on my way to work, it was about 4.30 am. Not far from where I live there is a canal and I was crossing the bridge when I spotted a larg furry animal it was about 18 inches to two foot long, possibly nine inches high, probably native to this country and it must have been a river creature or an animal that lived near the river, never did find out what it was and never saw it again.

    • 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.”
