Nurses House/cottage, Choppington

Recommended Posts

do any of you possibly have any information or photos about the Nurses House (Nurses Cottage) in Choppington please. I am trying to research its history and am having very little luck.  I know that the Kennedys lived here from 1965 and before that was a lady by the name of Isabella Charlton, any help would be greatly received.

New one on me,and a knew lots of Choppington people,but if it was in thi sixties,then a wud've been oot o' touch by then,and living at Hollymount Square,

in Bedlington.

Where was the Nurse's hoose then,please?..was it still in aad Dr Hickey's hoose and surgery..maybe?

Crowe....very unusual name,my eldest Son's Partner,in London,is a Crowe,and her family is extensive,but they originate from Shropshire.

Aal have her asked if she has any distant relatives up here,could be...in the same way my Son has...!!

Slightly off-topic,again!,but twenty years ago,when my Son moved to London,working in the recording studios as an engineer,he went up Finchley road

where he lives,to go to the local printer's to get a print job done for the studio.

When he went into the printer's shop,in thi high street,thi first person he set eyes on was Tommy Liddell's Grandson,Peter!! [Tommy who had Liddel's garage alang here at Stakeford for aboot two hundred years!!!!]what a co-incidence ti meet up after being at school together years before!

    • Bedlington darts ace Chris Dobey reached his first ever European Tour final on Sunday to all but secure his place in next month's World Matchplay.
      Dobey was beaten 8-3 by Dave Chisnall in the final of the Danish Darts Open at Copenhagen's Brondby Hallen but enjoyed a superb run over the three-day competition.
      The 29-year-old saw off Steve West, Ricky Evans, former World Championship finalist Kirk Shepherd, and Jose de Sousa before beating two-time major champion Gerwyn Price in the semi-finals to reach his first big-stage final.
      'Hollywood' ran out of steam in the final, though, and despite taking a 2-0 lead, he won just one of the next nine legs as Chisnall secured his first European Tour title since 2013.
      Dobey's run over the weekend now means he is all but assured of a World Matchplay debut next month, following on from his debut in the Premier League earlier this year.
      The World Matchplay is widely considered the second most prestigious major in the darts calendar after the World Championships and after narrowly missing out on qualification for each of the last two years Dobey is delighted he has secured a long overdue debut in the competion.

      A reminder for forum users that the Sixtownships website has been updated for June.
      http://www.sixtownships.org.uk
      We have updated our archives with letters from soldiers on the front-line during World War One.
      The letters make fascinating reading and come from the Bedlington, netherton, barrington, tyneside, choppington, alnwick, west sleekburn and other areas.
      For those interested have a good read, you never know you may have family from the past having wrote letters.
      Read how the use of gas by the Germans affected our soldiers, how villages were destroyed, acts of bravery, and much more, including the ultimate sacrifice, death.
      You will never get a better example of life in the trenches and with it written by those who witnessed it.
      No one alive today to tell the story, but these letters tell the story.
      100 years next year since it all began and we aim to add more letters to our archives in the future.
      If you have any letters you would like to share from loved ones from the war, put them on our forum and we will transfer them to our archives.

      The website has again been updated and this time for the 17th of May.
      The new story, The Zeppelin Raid on the North East, includes photographs and newspaper reposts with pics.

      Here is a little from it.
      About 8. O' clock the Zeppelin passed over the Choppington district on its way to Bedlington. When first seen it was coming from the coast and seemed to have come up the river. In a few seconds a large crowd ran down near to Mr. McHugh's sale rooms, where the Zeppelin was plainly visible, the noise being like that of a steam thrasher. Just at that point men were seen inside the Zeppelin as it hovered over the Social Club on the opposite side of the road, and proceed in a southerly direction. Immediately afterwards there was a flash, and a crack from a bomb followed by others.
      The Zeppelin bombardment is stated to have commenced at 8.12 pm, and to have lasted a very few minutes. The first bomb dropped with a terrific noise just behind the Workmen's Social Club near Choppington Station. The club however suffered no damage, nor was there damage done to any other building or a person injured, though five or six other bombs fell. Three of these fell in Mr. Huntley's field on the Bedlington side, close by. They were incendiary bombs .
