Wetherspoons - when did it open?

Recommended Posts

Did Wetherspoons open on the 5th September 2011?

From the previous comments on this site it was after 2010 - as that's when people were discussing what was happening to the Red Lion and were Wetherspoons taking over.

There is a web site giving all the Wetherspoons pubs and the dates they opened :- 


It lists the local pubs as :-


Northumberland: (6)
Ashington: Rohan Kanhai, 1-4 Woodhorn Road, Ashington, Northumberland. (27th October 2000)
Bedlington: Red Lion, Front Street West, Bedlington, Northumberland. (5th September 2011)
Blyth: Wallaw, 14 Union Street, Blyth, Northumberland. (28th April 2014)
Cramlington: John the Clark of Cramlington, Low Main Place, Cramlington, Northumberland. (19th September 2013)
Hexham: Forum, 8-9 Market Place, Hexham, Northumberland. (27th October 2000)
Morpeth: Electrical Wizard, 11 New Market, Morpeth, Northumberland. (5th September 2011)
The above list of pubs was posted in response to a question about the local Wetherspoon pubs on the Ashington remembered Facebook group and one member (lives in Alnwick) posted :-

    • Contentious plans for a caravan and camping site at Druridge Bay Country Park, which have sparked a number of objections, are being recommended for approval.
      Northumberland County Council's proposals for a plot to the south of Ladyburn Lake are supported by planners, with councillors advised to follow suit at next Tuesday's North Northumberland Local Area Council.
      The development would provide stone-surfaced access tracks and 20 caravan/camper-van pitches with electrical hook-up points and nearby water standpipes. Seven grass tent pitches would also be available.
      A waste-water cassette wash-out facility would be provided nearby, as well as a small modular building with facilities for washing dishes.
      It would operate for a maximum of seven months of the year, between the beginning of April and the end of October.
      Druridge Bay Country Park was created in 1983 following the restoration and reclamation of an opencast mine, before opening to the public in 1986.
