    Was walking the dog in the woods behind the hazlemere estate in bedlington and found a mountain bike thrown in the bushes way off the path. I left it just in case the owner was about but it was still there next day so I dragged it out and brought it home. It is an apollo mountain bike. If you think it is yours you need to describe it to me in detail. I have found the frame serial number so if you give me that good. It also has a unique kind of lock wrapped around the frame so if you have the key for it that would prove ownership to me. I want the bike to go back to its owner so dont 'try it on' please. Reply to this forum and we will go from there.

    It was a strange co-incident Bill because we had intended to go to Morpeth, but when we got there the main street was close owing to some sort of festival. That's how we ended up down the woods for a walk. Anyhow it was great to meet you and your wife and of course not forgetting Jesse. Perhaps we will have another chance meeting in the future but Corvid is the big sticking point at the moment, I have not been able to visit good old Bedlington for over a year now as Leicester seems to be stuck in a permanent lockdown. Take care and keep safe.

    I must have missed your album as i can't remember seeing those pages before. That's my bedtime reading sorted out for tonight! That Chronicle of events is very interesting, not only for the Tindal information. First. I can see that Netherton 'store' - the co-op - was established in Jan 1903 which fills another gap in my knowledge of Netherton. Second, I see that in August 1894 a "Mr R Studdy" was appointed General Secretary of the bedlington Branch. That's the father of Louis William Studdy, who i mentioned above as living in Jesmond with his aunt and uncle, Isabella and James Tindal. P.S. I've just found the entry in the register of deaths for John Davison Tindal. His death was registered in the third quarter (July/August/September) of 1947 which fits in rather nicely with the date on the tray.

    OK Martyn, here's the info I mentioned about Second Street vs. Plessey Street. It's a long document but I think it's worth posting for future reference: 1911 census, the enumerators round followed this route around the colliery: First Street 1-32 (3 rooms), 1st Second Street 1-27 (4 rooms), 2nd Second Street 1-30 (3 rooms), Third Street 1-25 (4 rooms) Addresses given by a) Residents and b) Enumerator for dwellings in Second Street Netherton1911 census. Details in brackets are amendments to the residents entry made by the enumerator. Deletions made in the form of crossing out also made by the enumerator and the address amended to match his own records. I can add here that even one resident of First Street gives his address as Plessey Street. So great was the confusion. Note that two residents refer to their address as Plessey Street “West”. I find this odd as it would have been the eastern part of Second Street adjacent to First Street. a)Resident b)Enumerator (1st) Second Street 1st Second Street 2 Plessey Street 2 Second Street 2 Plessey Street 2 1st Second Street 2 Plessey Street West 2 1st Second Street 3 Plessey Street 3 1st Second Street 4 Plessey Street West 4 1st Second Street 5 Plessey Street 5 1st Second Street 6 1st Second Street 6 1st Second Street 7 Plessey Street 7 1st Second Street 9 (1st) Second Street 9 1st Second Street 10 Plessey Street 10 1st Second Street 12 Second Street 12 Second Street 13 (1st) Second Street 13 1st Second Street 14 (1st) Second Street 14 1st Second Street 15 Plessey Street 15 1st Second Street 17 (1st) Second Street 17 1st Second Street 19 (1st) Second Street 19 1st Second Street 20 (1st) Second Street 20 1st Second Street 21 (1st) Second Street 21 1st Second Street 22 (1st) Second Street 22 1st Second Street 23 (1st) Second Street 23 1st Second Street 24 (1st) Second Street 24 1st Second Street 25 (1st) Second Street 25 1st Second Street 26 Plessey 26 1st 2nd Street 27 1st (Second) Netherton 27 1st 2nd Street 1 (2nd) Second Street 1 2nd Second Street 2 (2nd) Second Street 2 2nd Second Street 3 2nd Second Street 3 2nd Second Street 4 Plessey (2nd Second) Street 4 2nd Second Street 5 2nd Second Street 5 2nd Second Street 6Plessey (2nd Second) St. 6 2nd Second Street 7 Second Single(Second) Street 7 2nd Second Street 8 Second Street 8 2nd /2nd Street 9 2nd Street 9 2nd Second Street 10 Second Street 10 2nd Second Street 11 2nd Second Street 11 2nd Second Street 12 Second Street 12 2nd Second Street 13 second Street 13 2nd Second Street 14 Second Street 14 2nd Second Street 15 Second Street 15 2nd Second Street 16 Second Street 16 2nd Second Street 17 2nd Street 17 2nd Second Street 18 Second Street 18 2nd Second Street 19 Second Street 19 2nd Second Street 20 Second Street 20 2nd Second Street 21 Second Street 21 2nd Second Street 22 Second Street 22 2nd Second Street 23 2nd Second Street 23 2nd Second Street 24 2nd Second Street 24 2nd Second Street 25 Second Street 25 2nd Second Street 26 Plessey Row 26 2nd Second Street 27 Second Street 27 2nd Second Street 28 Second Street 28 2nd Second Street 29 2nd Single Row 29 2nd Second Street 30 Second Street 30 2nd Second Street Any questions, feel free to ask.

    @Canny lass - reply on Facebook from Hazel Krzyzanowski - ' ..sorry I don't know anything about it . I just shared the posting off someone in our group, sorry xxx' Normally that means that the photo + comment, from the person who initially posted it, has been 'Shared' = posted from one Facebook member to another and so on and so on - so tracking back to Lewis barker could be a never ending trail of 'Shares'.

    Now if I had been that member of the public that saw the police officers vehicles outside The Chef House Kitchen Cafe I would not have investigated the sighting but would have simply thought they were doing their job. I might have been tempted to report the cafe owner, as the cafe should not have been open on the 9th Jan during a Lockdown, but I wouldn't have reported the police officers.

    CL - Church of Christ = Front Street West and the Lion Garage extended it's buildings replacing the church. Garth Cottage was next to the church and the church caretaker's family, Marley, lived in Garth Cottage. Mr Marley worked at the Dr Pit and he and his wife were church caretakers. I know that info as back in the 1950's I used to attended the Church of Christ Sunday School held in the single story building behind the church. The caretakers grand daughter also went to the Sunday School (as did @Ovalteeny) and I courted that young lady in the late 1960's and visited Garth Cottage many times.
