  5. Bedlington drinking establishments - Then & Now Updated

    In History Hollow 'Reedy' posted - 'List Of Pubs And Clubs -Bedlington District'
    From that list I extracted the establishments within Bedlington and along with a list of list of pubs in 1886 from one of Evan Martin's books on Bedlingtonshire I, assisted by members on the Bedlington Remembered & Bygone Bedlington Facebook sites, attempted to find evidence of the listed establishments.
    This was not a delv into historic documents etc., just a www search combined with some 2009 Google Street View images.

  8. Bedlington Station Secondary Modern School Updated

    Nicknamed The Woody school, as it was mainly constructed of wooden planks. The school of our mate, Keith Lockey. Don't know when it first opened but it first appears on the 1951 ordnance survey map and it is not on the previous map of 1938.  Destroyed by fire in 1969. When the replacement school was built, opening in 1974, it combined with the grammar school to be Bedlingtonshire Community High School.
