    Coal Mining

    Alan, "What is a "rolley way man'? Also 1939". is answering the second question asked by CL, I think the answer Alan gives is for the #1 question scuffler, but I could be wrong!

    There is also a reference to a "scuffler" killed by a fall, but I cant find it. Scuffler, killed by a fall ...

    Coal Mining

    Canny lass, I found this in the" Durham mining museum- mining occupations". I'm sure HPW will have a better explanation ! also describe a "scuffler" A man whose business it is to attend to the rolley-way and keep it in order. It is also his duty to keep away the work, and see that no time is lost in getting the full waggons to the shaft and the empty ones in-bye again. His wages are about 2s. 9d. for 8 hours, or 3s. 4d. if he stands 12 hours (1849).

    Problems with webcam?

    Any updates Andy? Just wondering if we are going to get live coverage again, is the problem financial or technical? or a bit of both. I must say the picture is really clear.

    CL, When I connect I have to be fast! Going from "Info" to web cam or it's gone!

    Problems with webcam?

    I see the camera is working again, a nice clear picture but frozen! (at least for me it is) it is updated each time I reconnect, now we see the new street lights and flower displays, thanks those who have worked on the system.

    Thank you foxy, what a beautiful display again, so lucky to have all those volunteers putting in lots of time to keep Bedlington looking so nice.

    Where Are The Flowers In Bedlington?

    Are the flower pots out around the town as usual? they are a great attraction created by many dedicated townsfolk.

    Bedlington........Dying On Its A..e

    No Moe I don't have a problem with what you are saying other than it may just be a little bit exaggerated ! but not being there (and still no web cam!) I wouldn't comment. Yes Saturday night yobs are a very big problem and could be discussed at length but I think discussion is about Bedlington dying, I don't live there and I haven't been able to visit for many years, I don't think it's dying but it is changing and it in a perfect world it should be up to the residents how the changes are made. How do the businessmen see what the changes should be?

    Bedlington........Dying On Its A..e
