  1. Couldn’t drive then so it was the bus, and yes it was a long journey but worth it🙂
  2. Took my future wife there on our first date, and I had to travel from Wallsend whereas she came from Bedlington.
  3. A still photo every time I hit the webcam option.
  4. Yes, I can view it on my iPad from abroad.
  5. I use Findmypast and therefore have access to newspapers, and can access all of the years 1900-1949 for the Morpeth Herald
  6. In researching a family tree I have come across relatives who lived in Carr’s Buildings, Scotland Gate, Choppington. In the 1911 census there is a family called Carr living in the same block as my relative. I have scoured old maps to no avail, although there are several groups of named buildings in the Choppington area.
  7. Oh yes it is; but only static images.
  8. The map I’ve shown is the 25 inch version, recently introduced, and often gives more info compared to the 6 inch versions.
  9. The 1939 was a sort of census performed just before WW2 possibly prior to Identity cards being issued. Members of the McGlen family are actually listed within 3 relatively close addresses: St Cuthbert’s Tce, Millbank Cres and Beech Grove. However there are no results using St Cuthbert’s Crescent as the address.
  10. The 1939 register shows a McGlen family living at No 2 St Cuthbert’s Terrace. Obviously I don’t know if they are related to your subjects.
  11. The closure of Community Centres was also mentioned in another article.
  12. In the NHS we call it “black eye Friday”
  13. Would Councillor Wallace like to repeat his road safety exercise along Church Lane and Hotspur Avenue. The number of drivers that flout the posted speed limits is disgraceful.
  14. Hope it’s more succesful than the 20mph limit along Church Lane. From observations, only approximately 15% of drivers drive accordingly.
  15. The fire shop and the empty chemist shop as well.
  16. I followed a police car today which turned into the police station, and he used the bricked area all the way round.
  17. Probably another consequence of NCCs disregard for Bedlington.
  18. These two old maps show the railway line between the rows.
  19. Doesn't work for withheld numbers. After a week of bliss I've been bombarded today, all withheld, so 1572 doesn't recognise them.
