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.

This might be Wades farm with the tracks behind, we used to potatoe pick this field and when Wade took a load back to the barn we would drag sacks o tetties to the engineer on the train and sell them, made more than Wades wages

Hirst Head Farm, Bedlington

There was a murder here when i believe a Miss Swann had her throat cut about 1911 i think.

Will get the story put together for you all.

Miss Swann is in my family tree. My grandfather, John Carr-Swann, ran Hirst Head Farm in the 1930s. Any information would be gratefully read. Years ago, I visited when a lovely family with three boys had converted the farmhouse beautifully, I meant to stay in touch & wonder if they are still there. I have just joined this site so any contacts/info would be great.

My grandfather, John Carr-Swann, had Hirst Head Farm, before that it was Mr Swann who farmed it. Mr Swann had married John’s mother.

      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.

      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
