Where Is This ?

Recommended Posts

Was there a Home Guard based at Hartford Hall? Has it got something to do with that - 1940s?

The street could be the Rows (Raas).

For you Bedlingtonians on the forum, do you know where this photograph was taken ?

Can you get the year ?

I think its hardish, lets see who knows.

I would guess as a year 1941 don't know the place could be the Raas like Keith says, but I think they may have gotten pulled by the police for Gunning it now a days.

Another of Hirst Heads Farm., Who is he.

See if anyone can give names as there are none on the pics saying who anyone is.

Get some more up for weekend.

Was the Hirst Head Farm Wade's ? If it was the ploughman in the picture could be a Wade , or one someone who worked for them

      A boy racer “came close to almost killing” a family of three after he shunted their car into a bush while speeding towards them “like a bullet,” a court heard.
      Stephen Hill drove on the wrong side of the road and narrowly missed hitting a police car as he hit estimated speeds of up to 80mph on busy Northumberland streets.
      The 20-year-old, who was 19 at the time, left a family with “whiplash type injuries” after crashing into them at speed in Bedlington.
      The victim, who had been out with his partner and 17-year-old stepdaughter, said they had been left “traumatised” by the collision and that was “still in pain” more than six months later.
      Now Hill has avoided being locked up after a judge was moved by the victim’s generous letter asking for him to be “rehabilitated”.
      Prosecutor Ellen Wright said Hill was spotted by two police officers on May 9 driving a white VW Golf “at a high speed” and crossing the road onto the wrong side.

      Hi.
      Been to see a very interesting person today.
      Had a chat on Bedlington and the Furnace.
      She has given me a photo of The Last of the Nailers.
      She says it is Bedlington and on the back it is dated 1858.
      This has got me puzzled as of the date but it is in her families photographs and she aint sure who it is of.
      She is getting on in late life now and have to take that into my thinking.
      Could this be the Gibson family of Bedlington and a previous family member have written this on the back of the photo ?
      I don't know, what do you think. ?
      Post something else later as soon as it is scanned. From the elderly lady too.

      Do you think we could recreate Bedlington Front Street from years ago by using old pics ?
      I think it would be worth doing.
      Malcolm , i reckon it would be good for your project. What do you think.
      an example
      here's two pics , we could add on to these and re-create the street if we could get enough pics from that time
