  12. Living in the Oval area of Bedlington the Free woods, and the bandstand, was our playground throughout the late 50s & early 60s. We used to camp close to the Bandstand and play in the river not far from the bandstand. The bandstand was used to pile up our belongings whilst we were built a dam across the river. The water was deeper on the Ha'penny wood side but with a dam making it deeper we could dive bomb in off the large flat rock surface on the Ha'penny side. That's the area, where we were camping one Friday, or Saturday night, and we (also YMCA people) encountered our first early morning Hello, Hello what you lot doing here then', from the police, please accompany us to the Top End police station. Naturally we were totally innocent (it was not us that had stole the car and left it not far from where we were camping) and released, after questioning, after about 3-4 hours.
