Updated info on the Cross Tavern :- Following some research by the Bedlingtonshire History Society, during 2009-11, by Gloria Lawrie and another member they discovered that the Ale House was known as the Cross Inn, not Tavern, and it was located in the Market Place approximately where the shop numbered 20A is located now.

Additional comment by Gloria Lawrie on the Bygone Bedlington Facebook site was :- 'I did have some self interest when I did the research for the Bedlingtonshire History Society with another member - started 2009 finished it 2011 - My ancestors had the Gardener's Arms, The Black Bull, The Tankerville, Barrington Arms and the Cross Inn. Maybe that is why I enjoy real ale! Last I saw of the research was at a FFHS exhibition at Stannington in 2011, but I thought it was going to Woodhorn. I still have most of my notes if any queries.'
