Been to see a very interesting person today.
Had a chat on Bedlington and the Furnace.
She has given me a photo of The Last of the Nailers.
She says it is Bedlington and on the back it is dated 1858.
This has got me puzzled as of the date but it is in her families photographs and she aint sure who it is of.
She is getting on in late life now and have to take that into my thinking.
Could this be the Gibson family of Bedlington and a previous family member have written this on the back of the photo ?
I don't know, what do you think. ?
Post something else later as soon as it is scanned. From the elderly lady too.
Can anyone shed some light on the work going on at the old elliots garage site? Someone told me that there is going to be a old folks home built there, then someone else told me that the planning permission for that fell through.
I have searched the council websites for info but they havent come up with much as yet.
If it is going to be a residential home, which company is it for? I can find the name of the building contractors but not the actual company who they are building it for ( if they are building anything at all!)
Any info would be very much appriciated.
