  1. From random website:- MERMAID Dualism of Christ – half God, half man
  2. Well done Maggie, great picture. I visited St Cuthberts and found what I was looking for today but was disappointed with the stones where the inscriptions had worn off. I am not sure if Woodhorn Archives or ndfsh have anything. Hopefully someone is putting them all on line. There are commercial sites like FindAGrave that do it.
  3. I presume the forestry clearance at Gallagher Park is related to overhead cables.☹️
  4. In the past before Gallagher Park was developed the hedgerows on what is now the access road were always full of birds. There was a bird that we referred to as a 'Scribbleyjack' (Yellowhammer). I do not know where the name came from and it is not in common use. The bird does have a nickname of 'Scibble Lark' or 'Writing Lark'. Yellowhammer territories in the UK have declined by 50% in only twenty-five years. Perhaps something to look out for when you are walking through the park.
  5. I have also got connections with the Church Of Christ as that was my mother's church when she moved from Edinburgh to Bedlington after marrying my father.
  6. When John Davison Tindall died in 1947 his estate passed to his wife Dora Annie Adelaide Tindall. She died in 1957 and I would be happy to get details of what happened to her estate if that helps.
  7. Hi Margaret, the people of Bedlington will welcome you with open arms. Suspect you may have to wait a while for comments from the Longridge Farm development.
  8. Hi Paul, if the children of William and Margaret were Thomas, Joseph and Catherine I think they were in Burnside in 1939. My great grandfather was a William Young but not your William. There are better people than me to keep you right about place names. Good luck with your research and welcome to the website.

    Could it be the COOP at Falun? https://www.coop.se/195030
  10. I was walking my dog in the Gallagher Park area this morning and saw two red squirrel in the wooded area near the old Doctor Pit. If we have the reds we do not want the greys. I understand that there are some active locals in the woods around Humford who have tried to get rid of the greys and would welcome them to visit Gallagher Park and advise our councilors before any decisions are made
  11. Nine police officers who had breakfast together inside a cafe have been fined for breaching COVID lockdown rules on duty. The officers, from the Metropolitan Police, were fined £200 each and told to "reflect on their choices." Unfortunately some of our heroes can be fallible,
  12. I believe the first Bedlington Terrier was named Ainsley’s Piper in 1825. Perhaps we could have the Piper awards rather than the Tony's or the Oscar's.
