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 seven-year-old girl has brought her community closer together by creating beautiful messages of hope.
      Olivia Walker, from Bedlington, started by drawing a large poster to put on the fence for her next-door neighbours to see, because she "didn't want them to be sad when they were walking the dog".
      She then began to make more personalised posters, to display on fences or in her windows, aimed at cheering up other neighbours.
      The rainbow has become a popular symbol of hope within the pandemic over the two weeks, with many households displaying rainbows in their windows as a sign that this 'storm' will pass.
      But Olivia has taken it a step further with her personalised messages, drawing more for strangers online after her designs were shared on a local Facebook group and brought delight to many who saw them.
      The St Bede's R C Primary School pupil said: "I wanted to do it because people are along, and I wanted to make them happy. It makes me happy to see how much people like them."

      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
