Foggans Yard

Recommended Posts

Can anyone tell me where Foggans Yard in Bedlington was?  Is a photo of Foggans Yard available?  The place comes up in some work I am doing and I am not sure where it was.  Any help appreciated.

There's two topics with references to Foggan's yard I can find (excluding yours :) )

Isn't Ashianas a bit further down the block, more to the right of the entrance to Foggans Yard. I think the TSB is on the corner where the fish shop was.

Used to get my hair cut there.  When getting my hair cut as a youngster I heard the expression 'something for the weekend sir'.  I had to ask my dad what it meant!, was he embarressed.

Is that Foggans yard through the archway ? I can remember going to the Council  yard workshops /stores in that place many years ago to get a new grate for the fire, for some reason I thought it was called Bells yard

I think Bells yard was further down, where  Moods now has a shop. I have been known to be wrong, Eggy might know better, If not I'll bet he finds out!!:)  

 

Can't help with a Bell's Yard - there is still Bells Place down Front Street east - the old maps back to 1865 also show it as Bells Place - there is an archway but have no idea if it was ever known locally as Bell's yard :mellow:

    • 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.”
