    Coal Mining

    There are a few common spam words in the filters you may have hit but I can't see anything in your post that would have caught it. I'll check on it though, thanks.

    Encouraging engagement

    Not a bad idea. We can make the categories and albums public but the images member only but I'm all for keeping things open generally. Getting people to sign up doesn't seem to be an issue as there's a constant stream of members it's the engagement that is sometimes tricky. The advantage of Facebook is it's general social aim but it's also the big disadvantage in that pretty much everything posted there is ultimately doomed to get lost. We're working on allowing people to post before registering so that posting and signing up are part of the same process. Hopefully that will help.

    Perhaps we should start another photo appeal and ask people to list any specific places or people of interest.

    The future of Bedlington...from the past

    @Alan Edgar (Eggy1948) That's great to hear, glad I can help. They could have had one a lot sooner though if I had known. Tell them to get on over to support the local site that actually values and protects the content and isn't out to profit from invading their privacy πŸ˜› Incidentally I've just scanned a lot of old family photos, many of which feature people and places of Bedlington. Threegee is going through them and adding any info he can and I'll be posting the relevant ones to a public album soon.
  6. Sharing some interesting town plan info I found in the loft from 1979 A couple of PDFs... Bedlington Town Local Plan - June 1979.pdf The Bedlington Improvement Programme.pdf And some images....

    Problems with webcam?

    A bit of both. It’s surprisingly popular so maintaining multiple streams on a single connection causes problems elsewhere. I’m trying to find a suitable service that will redistribute the feed that isn’t cost prohibitive.

    Thomas Glassey Arrives in Bedlington

    Extract from the book "Some men, Murders and Mysteries of Old Bedlington" by Evan Martin. THOMAS GLASSEY β€”1844-1936 When people talk of living a full life there cannot be a better example of the ideal than Thomas Glassey. He lived 92 years and it is difficult to imagine even one of them being mundane. Glassey wasn't Bedlington born. He arrived here with his wife in 1867, a young man of radical principles, via Northern Ireland and the Scottish coalfield.
