Shop on Gordon Terrace?

Recommended Posts

HI folks, I'm about to buy a property on Gordon Terrace in Stakeford and have noticed that according to the council's records, it used to be a shop prior to 1978.  It was converted by a man from Morpeth who's name escapes me, he also built the Kitchen and Garage to the rear.  Does anyone remember or know what the history was of this building and what kind of shop it was?

 

Many thanks,

@Steve McGill - I remember, 1960's, there was a couple of small shops in Gordon terrace but can't remember any history of them. My only memory is of small General Dealers, that were on the end of the terrace where there was a road through to the back lane. Looking at Google Street view, 2008, one of them is shown as The Barber Shop but don't know if it still is.

I seem to remember a couple of postings on one of the local Facebook groups but at the moment can't find them. 

There is a lad Brian Jenkinson on the local Facebook groups and I though he used to have a group on Stakeford but can't find that group either so I am not being very helpful here  🙃. Brian is still on Facebook, and I see you are, so it could be worth contacting him via Facebook Messenger and see if he has any info.

      Police are investigating a Bedlington care home where inspectors say some elderly residents weren't kept safe.
      Medicines had allegedly gone missing at Baedling Manor Care Home, while the local authority was called in to monitor the home's safeguarding arrangements.
      The home's 49 residents "did not always experience safe care and treatment", inspectors from the Care Quality Commission (CQC) said.
      The CQC said it had launched an inspection after being contacted with concerns about "safeguarding people, staffing, recruitment, medicines, infection control, consent, complaints and the governance of the service".
      Downgrading the home, run by Alcyone Healthcare, from 'Good' to 'Requires Improvement', the report said: "People were not always safeguarded from the risk of harm. Incidents were not reported or recorded properly, and action was not always taken to address matters.
      "The home was placed into organisational safeguarding by the local authority and there were police investigations in progress."
