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 teenager called police to report a man was brandishing a knife in public - but it turned out to be him carrying the blade.
      Jack Barrass, 19, has been sent to prison for nine months after being caught by police in possession of the knife on March 24.
      The teenager had called police to claim that he had witnessed a man waving a knife above his head on St James' Crescent in Benwell.
      When police arrived they spotted a man who matched the description of the person given by the caller.
      Officers approached him and carried out a stop and search, at which point the man admitted he had a knife tucked into his trousers.
      Bodycam footage of the search has been shared by the force, showing Barrass admitting he has a knife seconds after being approached by an officer.

      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 .
