Can Anyone Remember Anything About Land At Stakeford Road?

Recommended Posts


I'm doing a bit of research with my elderly mother and trying to jog her memory a bit.

Can anyone remember the land at the beginning of Stakeford Road ? Who owned this land? I know Allan Tait bought it and was later used as a scrapyard - what was here before? I remember The Thornton Brothers were over the road, but my mam is trying to tell me all about before this but not making much sense!

I'm hoping someone out there can help me out so I can help my mam out a bit!

There about 6 streets there in first half of last century.Right up to the railway bridge.There was a farmhouse dated 1844 next to the road in middle of village.

German aeroplane was shot down in the brickyard just behind village.

Also there was a pit in Victorian times in the vicinity of the burn.

Arthur Coxon was an onsetter at Bedlngton A pit.

    • 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.”
