    Matty Hall - Whitley Memorial & Medowdale Teacher

    @HIGH PIT WILMA - I posted your comment on Facebook where Matty Hall's grandson had posted the news of Matty Hall. This is the response from his grandson - John Davidson :- John Davidson Alan Edgar thanks so much for taking the time to post this, it's a lovely tribute from Bill. I remember talking to him outside my Grandads last summer when he was walking down the lane and I was doing the garden, we had a good crack, smashing fella.

    St. Bede's Primary & Senior School

    Before the new senior school - St. Benet Biscop Catholic High School opened I was told that both the junior & senior schools went under the name of St Bede's. This album will be a mix of photos from the junior & senior schools.

    Coal Mining

    @Bill 19 - I have no idea what the site is you mentioned above. This is a map showing the old Plessey Wagonway from Plessey Mill to Blyth. Close to where I think you are saying the 'entrance door' is ( just to the right of Plessey Mill next to the number 79 on this map), there are some old mine workings identified - 'Rodney Pit' & 'Old Coal Workings'

    Market Place Christmas Tree

    Seems like a good idea. As I have never seen it up close, is it planted in soil or just kept upright by 'guide ropes'?

    Westridge School - End of term class photos

    The following info is from the http://discovery.nationalarchives.gov.uk/details/rd/8ad93b61-5d1a-46e9-ad51-f17b07e91684 site :- History: The school opened officially in 1958 and was reorganised as a middle school in 1976. It had ceased to function by 1977 when the premises were taken over by St. Benet Biscop's Roman Catholic Aided High School. The school records were transferred to the new Meadowdale County Middle School which opened in 1982.
