  12. 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.

  15. Bedlington Station (Sleekburn) 1st School, started pre 1850. Updated

    Info from Rootsweb online genealogy forum :- 'Sleekburn had a school from at least 1842. This is supported by entries in the Methodist records by a local preacher who stated that he preached in the new Board School in that year. Evidently there are no surviving records to indicate when the School was opened. The School was of course built by the Colliery Owner, more so to keep his workers happy and content.. It appears that the School closed in 1941 and was taken over and used as a County Library.
    Source - "Sleekburn (The Station) with Bank Top, East Sleekburn and Red Row" by Stephen B Martin - Bedlingtonshire Villages History Series.

  16. Sch. near Bells Place - Hollymount Hall - 1896 Updated

    I have been creating an Album, on this site, for each of the schools in the Bedlington area. Whilst looking at an 1896 map of Bedlington around the area of Hollymout Hall & Bell's Place I noticed there was a 'Sch.' identified. I have not found any further info, on the www, about this school. I have not checked the historical records held at the Woodhorn Museum. The label 'Sch.' does not appear on the 1920 map but the label 'Misn. Rm.' appears to have taken it's place.

  22. West Sleekburn Colliery Updated

    These 19 photos are from Eddie Yarrow. Eddie made these comments in the History Hollow section of the group :- 
     
    I've found about 19 photos like this, I think from West Sleekburn Colliery in about the early 1950s?
    They were taken by my dad, Grundy Watson Yarrow,..........; who is pictured in one of the photos
    I would like to put names to as many miners in the photos as possible and then hopefully send them all to Ashington Archives.
    Do you know any of the miners in the photos?   
    Although the photos are free to copy for personal use,
    They are copyright for use for profit making

  23. Bedlington Gateway Features Updated

    In 2017 four gateway features were chosen for their association with Bedlington. All are inextricably linked either by their commercial, religious or social heritage to the town. They have all been placed at strategic points to give anyone coming into the town by car or bus the maximum view point and all carry the adage "Welcome to Bedlington".

  24. Humford Mill Waterworks & Swimming Baths Updated

    Historically, Humford, a tiny hamlet, consisted of only two houses on two separate sites – the Waterworks that were later converted into 'Humford Open Air Swimming Baths' and now the area is part of the Bedlington Country Park Local Nature Reserve.
