  1. Is Fletcher an old word for butcher? I’m looking at the moon again x
  2. Sorry to intrude, you’re obviously not MY Jojo! Apologies Rx
  3. Yup, I have politely suggested SOUTH EAST NORTHUMBERLAND, p👍lease x
  4. Correction- maybe not boots, possibly knee socks. But skirt length definitely well above the knee, suggests? at least 60’s for the John Dawson photo? Of course, I’m frequently wrong 🙃 x
  5. @Alan Edgar (Eggy1948)Dear Sir, thank you very much for this lovely sequence of flowers, I’m very grateful 🤗xx
  6. @Vic Patterson I’m sure you’re absolutely right, I blame the developers x
  7. Yup @Vic Patterson, I agree entirely; as long as it stays at Blyth- I think Blyth is sneaking in Bedlington’s backdoor 😳😱! Xx
  8. However, passports may become irrelevant if we are engulfed or subsumed into Blyth, the boundaries keep creeping closer. I know it’s just inevitable progress, as Sleekburn became Bedlington Station; looking at the old towns and villages which are now integral parts of cities throughout the country; inevitable. Too many people on this planet for the likes of me 😟, best regards Rx
  9. @Canny lasson reading this comment again it sounds facetious and possibly even sarcastic. I apologise, this was not my intention; I was ineptly attempting to convey my continuing admiration of your acute scrutiny and attention to detail. I think you are an adept detective of maps and photos, perceptive and precise (hence my reference to Sherlock H) My very best regards Roseanne xx
  10. Is it another of my clouded memories but was there a blue “hut”, behind the Church of Christ where I spent a lot of time at a youth club of sorts? I also definitely attended young teenage disco’s, in the Methodist church hall, remember that always finished with ‘the party’s over 🎶’ x I’m unclear about my Brownies career but suspect that was at the back of the Trinity church? Regular flibbertigibbit, me 😁x
  11. Ooh, you’re giving your age away there @Malcolm Robinson! Xx
  12. I’ll second your comment on getting to dinner on time @Malcolm Robinsonx by the bye I’m sure I’m not the only person to notice the large sign at the Horton junction beyond the Ha’penny woods saying “Welcome to Blyth”? Is Bedlington at risk of being swallowed? Maybe another reason to resist capitulating to the “Ashington/Blyth constituency “ suggested? x
  13. I stand corrected, apologies to @Malcolm Robinsonx
  14. Haha! I LOVE the way politician’s use the word “we should do” something when they are really hoping someone else will do the donkey work! x
  15. As @Alan Edgar (Eggy1948)made very clear when I asked about West/East and Sleekburn, that prior to the coming of the railways, Sleekburn was a community not defined by a railway station. x
  16. Right on Sherlock!! Nowt gets past your beady-eyed powers of perception and razor-sharp deduction!! xx
  17. Oh, frustrating! I have no recollection either but Josephine is adamant, she described the Post Office and a fruit and veg shop which she is sure was “Barnes”. My memory of Barnes was @ the “white house “, behind which was the doctor’s surgery ( John brown, Mulligan etc). This was at the top of the “Cut” leading down to Nana Graves in Shiney Row . Anyone else out there help with Ninettes?? There was a hairdresser in the market place where I had my hair done for Auntie Eileen’s wedding to Barry Shell, given time I can up/down load a photo xx
  18. Ye brazen hussy, ye @Canny lass! I never mentioned my knickers! However, on a similar note, d’you remember a shoeshop towards the Neil called Ninettes? Josephine mentioned it but I have no recollection at all xx
  19. Yes, but, I have vivid memories of that shop being called Fewsters, phonetically. x
  20. Yup. Thank you very much, and yes, definitely Moldens to the left, that was my feminine apparel shop xx
