  1. From the album: The North East in the 1960s

    This might well be the Boxing Day Meet in 1965. I don’t think that hunting was as contentious an issue in the 1960s as it is now. I am definitely not a hunt supporter – I just include this as a record of past events. The woman in the centre of the photo was riding side saddle, wearing a black riding habit and a bowler hat.

  4. From the album: Netherton/Nedderton old photos

    I think this photo dates from the 1920s. It shows a local man at Netherton with his prize-winning horse. I was told that flat carts like the one in the photo were known as "rollies" at Netherton.

    Guess where

    Hi Sissinghurst, sorry for the very long delay, it wasn't deliberate, but I rarely use the website now. The statue is at Eggleston Hall Garden, about 5 miles from Barnard Castle. The garden is well worth a visit, and not not many people seem to know about it. This is the website http://www.egglestonhallgardens.co.uk/walk.html Regards, Carole
  7. I've added a new album called ‘End of an Era' in the Places section of the Gallery. It contains newspaper cuttings dating from the 1970s about the end of the colliery. There are some photos and quite a lot of cuttings mentioning people who lived at Netherton at the time. The cuttings make me remember what a strong community it was. Quite a lot of people really wanted to stay but the Council wouldn't improve the houses. Carole

  23. From the album: Netherton/Nedderton old photos

    This photo shows a delivery of pit props in the pit yard. The length of the props presumably indicates the height of the seam. Photographs at Woodhorn Museum show that many miners in the area worked in seams much lower than this, and at the end of Netherton Colliery's working life men were crawling through tunnels no more than 2 feet high to get out the last accessible coal. The Hall Pit was beside the road to the west of Nedderton Village, near Nedderton Hall. Old maps show that Nedderton village was originally called Netherton. Apparently the Post Office asked for the name change because the confusion with Netherton near Rothbury led to problems delivering mail. The name of Nedderton village was changed, but for some reason the name Netherton Colliery remained. Older people who had lived in the village before the spelling was changed to 'Nedderton' still used to call it Netherton Village. This link shows a 1920 map of the location of the Hall Pit, with Nedderton village being clearly identified as 'Netherton'. http://communities.northumberland.gov.uk/006672FS.htm

    This is the pit head of the Howard Pit. Between the pit head and the chimney you can see the colliery offices and Office Row.
