  1. @wdmytrenko - this is an updated photo (also posted above). We have number 18 as your old pal Dennis Smith but numbers 16 and 17 were named by a member, Claire Ellis, of the Bygone Bedlington Facebook group who posted this comment :- --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Claire Ellis My dad says he is 17- Ted Ellis, and his brother Jim Ellis is 16 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- If you confirm numbers 16 & 17 are you and your brother I will update the names
  2. Don't know about Bedlington - @John Fox (foxy) and @Jammy should. Seghill very quiet for the 5 months. I've been watching out the window whilst Jacquie works away in the garden, without her specs so she can't tell a weed from a new flower shoot.
  3. @Canny lass - I think this was the info I had stuck in my memory = @Reedy's dads info.
  4. I'm sure we have some info on the naming of Glassey Terrace in an old topic. Will have to have a search
  5. @tullybrone - whilst searching for some info I have just noticed your comment asking about Phoenix Row, Clayton Street and what local pit your relatives would have been working at. Looks like your comments were lost among the other topics that were active at the time. If you are still accessing the site and still looking for info I will see if I can help you.🙂
  6. Not that my aging reflexes (mine are more involuntary reflexes these days) would ever make the grade I'm just curious as to what you do to earn money with your hobby :-
  7. My money is on 'No' but @Malcolm Robinson & @Bill Crosby could prove me wrong😌
  8. Watch loads of football but I have to turn the volume down to 0, cam't stand the Sky 'crowd noise'. I find it's just a constant droning noise that's even worse than the commentators going on and on about pointless stats.🤓
  9. @Mark Black Doubt if you will get a reply from this 2009 topic. The members that have commented in the past haven't visited the site lately - latest was @BedlingtonLass in 2017
  10. Stay Safe photo from Simon Williams - May 2020
  11. @Jr6468 Can't remember if it was demolished in 2016 but this photo was posted on Facebook - 27th July 2016 by Vic Thompson.
