No freeze-ups since.  Fingers crossed they've fixed the problem.

    Public House

1.1  I don't have a list of the dignitaries who attended the opening of James Steel Park but this is what they had for bait!

1.2  Some facts about Usworth Brickyard in this press cutting.  Thanks to Derek Sleightholme of the Glebe Banner Group.

1.3  Sent to us by Keith Cockerill: a Johnson Hedley painting of the R. Wear at Fatfield - almost certainly Dog Hole.

1.4  Well known thoroughfare and empty fields.  The 25 bus passed along this road.  Which Village was built here?

1.5  The village pub, also built on the empty fields in the previous thumbnail.  More houses still to build on the far side.

2.1  Press cutting added to Jack Stelling's page.  It remembers Jack and announces his funeral service at Holy Trinity.

2.2  If you attended Washington Grammar, here's a chance to see a picture of the man who gave his name to the school.

2.3  The image link will take you to the Pub Crawl selection.  You'll find this pub under the Washington Village tab.

Press cutting added to the page

of a very well known local lad.

Robert Michael T.......?

As a young boy he first trod the boards in that
building immediately above Fatfield Bridge.

( It's a Gem! )
