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.'

    • Five parks in Northumberland are to be upgraded thanks to an investment of £287,000.
      Northumberland County Council's cabinet approved to spend £204,000, with the remaining £83,000 funded by contributions from the likes of town and parish councils.
      As part of its medium-term financial plan, the local authority has already set aside capital funding of £150,000 per year from 2018-19 to 2020-21 to invest in parks and green spaces.
      So far, money has been spent at Jennings Field in Bedlington , Astley Park in Seaton Delaval, and Eastwood Park in Prudhoe.
      Following the sign-off on Tuesday, Blyth's Ridley Park and Mermaid play area, Alexandra Park in Cramlington , Gallagher Park in Bedlington, and Rothbury's Riverside play area are all set to benefit.
      At Ridley Park, £45,000 will be spent in total with £25,000 being used to refurbish the hugely-popular water play area.
