Malcolm, you of all people should know that Bedlington actually doesn't exist. It is like Brigadoon. We are a quasi-legendary place like Atlantis, Lemuria and Ultima Thule. People have heard of them but they are not quite sure if they are real. That is what Bedlington is like now - the Elysium Fields of Greek myth; a place where the dead go. There was a joke going round years ago that the only things in Bedlington were solicitors, supermarkets and pubs. The pubs are all but gone; we have two supermarkets - though Morrisons is unobtainable to many in the winter; and the solicitors have turned into real estate offices. We're doomed!

Bedlington in the not too distant future.

Brigadoon..................like it. I might just use that!

BTW if you look at the Bedlington local pages on the Journal web site have a look at my old blogs. Especially the tumbleweed one!

You're forgetting the florists, tattoo parlours and hairdressers which we have too many of.....

Cheers
