  3. @Jammy & @Ovalteeny Elizabeth Buchart knows more but we agreed to let the other members on the groups have a go at remembering first rather than her add all the names she could remember. I have now asked Elizabeth to have a look at those named so far and give me any updates over the next couple of days. Names so far :-
  4. @Jammy - also added the image to the Facebook group, Bygone Bedlington, and I have worked my way through the many comments (40+ to date) and along with yours added some names. Naturally there will be some wrong - going back 55 - 65 years to name the occupants in the late 50's to early 60's is going to throw up some conflicts, and it already has. Like you I always remember Beadle's as a double fronted shop and to match in with the numbering of the houses I have given him two numbers. I will update as more comments are posted
  5. @Jammy - The Oval House and Shops - your starter for 10. @Ovalteeny - I finally got around to it, with the help of Elizabeth Armstrong (ne Buchart).
  6. @Jammy - new I had seen Elizabeth comment of the Facebook groups but it took a while to track a comment down - we have the surname wrong, it was Buchart. Elizabeth Armstrong I lived at 27 the oval above the newsagents with mum dad an sister Blanche our maiden was Butchart Hide or report this Like · Reply · 2y

What spirit forms the base of the liqueur Benedictine? Answer = none, it is a unique herbal liqueur In 1510, the Benedictine monk Don Bernardo Vincelli created the recipe for this French liqueur, which calls for 27 plants and spices. The three main ingredients are Angelica, Hyssop and Lemon Balm. There are only three people on earth who know the complete recipe for making the spirit. Fact - The United Kingdom remains a significant market in Europe where much of the Bénédictine is consumed in the Burnley area of England. This is as a result of returning Great War soldiers of the East Lancashire Regiment acquiring a taste for the drink whilst stationed in France during the War. Traditionally people in East Lancashire drink Bénédictine with hot water, known as 'Béné and hot', and the Burnley Miners Club is reputedly the largest single customer. 5.
