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!

    • A big-hearted donation by one of South East Northumberland’s largest employers has enabled local football club, Bedlington Terriers FC, to provide its players, staff and visitors with rapid emergency response should it ever be needed.
      Lynemouth Power Station has gifted the community club with a life-saving heart defibrillator which will now be installed at the Welfare Park ground. If deployed within three to five minutes of a cardiac arrest, such equipment could potentially increase the chances of someone surviving a heart attack from six to 74 per cent. Each minute without CPR and defibrillation also reduces a patient’s survival rate by between seven and ten per cent.*
      The Northern League Division Two club is home to seven teams and over 80 footballers from senior players to an under 6 ‘tots’ team. Along with daily training sessions and match attendances, the club sees hundreds of people visiting the ground on a weekly basis therefore the defibrillator has been very well received by all.
      Rowan Edwards, Commercial Director of Bedlington Terriers FC, commented, “This is a vital piece of first aid equipment and we are extremely grateful to Lynemouth Power Station for their kind donation. Given the number of on-site staff, players training each week and visitors to the ground, it is essential that our trained staff have instant access to life-saving equipment in case of emergencies. It will mean a lot to everyone here at the club as well as the local community, so we’re very grateful for the power station’s support.”
      Janet Mole from Lynemouth Power Station added, “Having these devices installed in popular public places and venues is so important, so rather than just donate to the fundraising effort, we decided to purchase the equipment outright on behalf of the club. As a local employer, it is important that community initiatives like this are well supported so we’re delighted to hand over the defibrillator to all at the club.”

      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 .
