'Glimpses of Old Bedlingtonshire' is one of Evan Martin's books that mentions the Fish family who lived in The Neuk in Salmon Place.

Apparently their neighbours were the Haddock family.

Hi Tonyp,

Francis and Jane Heron were in Salmon Place in 1911 with their children Mary 8yrs, Francis 6yrs, Margaret 4yrs and Samuel 2yrs. Jane is shown as 34 yrs from Bellingham.

It appears that Francis Ward Heron married Jane Charlton in 1901 in Bellingham.

Tonyp Salmon Place was just off the Market Place in Bedlington and often called 'The Neuk' or Muggars' Nook' , although Salmon Place was the row of 2 rooms houses and cottages at the bottom of Muggars' Neuk (Muggar is another name for a Hawker)  facing back up towards the Market Place.  The first written evidence of Salmon Place I can find is an advert in the 'Morpeth Herald' 28 February 1880 for a seed list from John Brown of Woodbine Cottage Salmon Place (my 3G uncle)  Salmon Place was recommend for Clearance in 1938 although I found an application in 1944 by Mr. Fred Reed for possession to occupy 1-4 Salmon Place.  I found the entry for your Grandmother Margaret starting school on 20 August 1912, father Francis.  There is also an entry for Francis 1909 father Francis a miner.

    • A festive operation aimed at tackling crime and disorder in Sunderland city centre has been hailed a success after crime rates plummeted by 16%.
      Business leaders on Wearside joined Northumbria Police and Crime Commissioner Kim McGuinness in praising the impact of Operation Kraken after the initiative led to a significant drop in recorded crime.
      Spearheaded by Sergeant Maria Ord and the city centre neighbourhood team, the annual festive crackdown was again run in partnership with the Bridges and Sunderland Business Improvement District (BID), along with Sunderland City Council.
      From November 25 through until Christmas Eve, the initiative saw uniformed and plain-clothed officers target all city centre criminality, specifically adult anti-social behaviour and retail-related offences.
      Now, after the 2019 Kraken operation showed a 16% decrease in city centre crime compared to the previous year, Sgt Ord hopes to build on those successes in the coming months.
      "We are delighted with how Operation Kraken went," Sgt Ord said. "The initiative was about maintaining a hassle-free and safe environment which allowed families to enjoy everything this city has to offer during the lead-up to Christmas.
