Gardeners Arms in Historic Bedlington 5 Posted May 20, 2018 · Edited May 20, 2018 by webtrekker · Report reply Happy times. We spent many an hour with our noses stuck up against Beadle's shop window. They had lots of small toys and trinkets to interest us kid's and we took turns at 'bargsying' items. We also loved the glass advertising signs stuck to many shop windows in those days. They were easily prised off with a pen knife by 'collectors' (er,.... or so I'm told!). Nice to see the West Sleekburn miners banner too.
