  3. 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 (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.

  10. 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.

  12. Bedlingtonshire Community High School Updated

    Entry under History in Wikipedia states :- 'It was founded in 1926 as Bedlington Secondary School for the areas of Bedlingtonshire, Ashington and Newbiggin, being built next to Bedlington railway station. Subsequently it became Bedlington Grammar School, before turning comprehensive in 1974. It gained Maths and Computing College status in 2009.
    I would add - the Secondary Modern School merged with the Grammar School to create the High School. The new build + the old grammar school remained until a new High School was built, on the existing grounds, and opened in 2016.
