Angela,

I believe it was a surface mine. Are you using a digital camera? Orbs are specks of dust magnified, don't worry about them.

Spot on Merc,

These pics were taken from my mothers front garden at North Ridge, the opencast was finished and only the tidying up left to do.You'll notice bottom right on pic number three there is one of those vehicles that were used to go down the Furnace Bank mentioned on another thread here. :) Canny Lass may remember this place, its not too far from her childhood home.

Thanks! For the record, my mother was the very first inhabitant of the estate, on Dunstanburgh Close.

Certainly do Foxy. The opencast was a field where we used to play that originally belonged to Fails Farm, if I'm not misstaken. It was between the colliery rows and what eventually became North Ridge. One of the things I remember about the opencast was a small red brick building, just up the road from Raisbeck's Garage, where they used to put new treads on enormous tyres. Possibly from the trucks on the site. The smell was horrible. Edited by Canny lass

There is a walkway alongside a little stream, that seems like an oasis away from the roads.

It is right next to the Hazelmere Estate and starts next to a bus stop.

Maybe that seems a little creepy Angela.

If there are ghosts or anything else I am sure it will be a force for good.

Pause for Star War thoughts!

The pathways to Choppington, Hepscott and then on to Morpeth are great.

If you have not explored, they are brilliant.

Not far away is Bothal and the Wandbeck.

Truly inspiring.

There is, locally known as 'the Burn'; walking my dog there a few years ago he was fifty yards ahead of me and stopped dead, alert; there was a cat on the path, a further hundred yards away, bigger than the dog (collie).

Can't  see me ever been persuaded - convinced - given proof etc etc that anything that is called paranormal has got anything to do with so called spooks - ghosts = of or relating to the claimed occurrence of an event or perception without scientific explanation, as psychokinesis, extrasensory perception, or other purportedly supernatural phenomena.

Yes unusual thinks occur but that's normal ☺️  - especially when leaving any public house after a long session😱

      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.
