Doyle's shop - Stead Lane

Recommended Posts

@Vic Baldry - I thought I had remembered a posting with a photo of Doyles shop, Stead Lane but I couldn't find the posting I was thinking of.

There is however this photo of the shop before it was called Doyle's = Boyle's shop with this comment from Ann Doyle off the Bedlington Facebook group :- 

'This photo was taken outside of Boyle's shop on Stead Lane across the road from Puddlers Row, the shop then belonged to my husbands Great Aunt Grace Boyle the lady on the right of photo, when Grace passed away his Granny Winifred Creigh took over she is the lady on the left they were sisters. The young girl seated Margaret was then aged about 15 the daughter of Winifred, she later married a Tom Doyle and her and her hubby took over the shop and was known as Doyle's Shop Stead Lane. The shop eventually closed in 1980 and I believe to this day the bus stop is still known as Doyle's Shop although it is a house now.'

    • A new home at Cambois has been given the go-ahead after councillors rejected the planners' view that the site was in the open countryside.
      Plans for the construction of a two-storey house and detached garage, between Berristock and Debdon House, were recommended for refusal at Wednesday night's (March 13) Ashington and Blyth Local Area Council.
      But members unanimously backed the scheme, as they did not consider it was in the open countryside, that it was on previously developed brownfield land and that a refusal - saying development was unsuitable in this area - would essentially split Cambois in two.
      The ward councillor, Jeff Gobin, and East Bedlington Parish Council had both supported the application as well.
      Coun Brian Gallacher said: "If this applicant didn't build his house there, what else is going to go there? You are going to end up with a patch of wasteland."
      Coun Grant Davey added: "I would like to see Cambois rebuilt as a very lively village."
