  2. @Andy Millne - thought I had seen that building before and it's the one that has been identified at the Bedlington Station Welfare Park. So no idea if it was Dr Pit Welfare ladies bowls team visiting the Bedlington Station Welfare of if it was the Station Welfare team. This is the other photo :-

  4. We have a lot there Eggy and given the amount of times I'm told recently Bedlington isn't as well known as one of our neighbours I think we should be using this to promote the place! In fact i think we should do something really outstanding with it!

  5. I had a wander around the area using the enumerator's book for the 1911 census, just 5 years after the photo was taken,. Here are pages 13 and 14. (unfortunately, you get pages 7 and 8 as well as the book has been taken apart for scanning). Following the enumerator on his rounds from Hartford Road(Page 13 schedule number 277) you see that he moves west to east along the south of the main street - then called "High Street", recording as he goes: Doctors Yard - private houses and lock-up shops High Street - also lock up shops and private houses. continuing eastwards on High Street, between schedule number 295 and 296 (Page 14) he records: Presbyterian Church (Now Trinity Church) Private house x 2 (Now the garage) Lock-up shop x 2 ( the single storey buildings with window shutters in the 1907 photo. Christian Meeting House (presumably part of or behind the next building) Primitive Methodist Chapel Garth House, High Street. So we got it mapped out correctly. Well done! Page 13 (right side) Page 14 (left side).

  6. From this photo of the same year... If this is the same person in both photos. I wonder if the c1930 photo could be a little earlier judging by the moustache colouring

  7. Must be an early one @Andy Millne - that's the only one Iv'e seen where the chimney from the Water Works still exists when the place was converted to the swimming baths.

  9. Hey Malcolm, you man the barricades, I’ll make the sandwiches. I’m not a fan of the Berwick lady but she’s on the same track: instead of contemplating our neighbours’ navels let’s identify our place within the national picture 🤗x

  10. Bedlington Station is Sleekburn Tony The time line is a huge task m8, and some forum users may try to pull it down, but i say try it yourself as it aint easy. But as i say Bedlington Station Is Sleekburn, it is well known as that and has been as long as i have known it
