1. PHOTO GALLERY
1.1 Looking back from the high ground beyond the Washington Arms: The Village Green, Cross Keys & Our Lady's.
1.2 Thanks to Pauline for sending us an image to complement No. 1.3. How many times did you climb these pit heaps?
1.3 Usworth Secondary / Comprehensive School at the end of The Flat Tops. Usworth Colliery in the background.
1.4 A fairly long view taken behind Front Street, from close to the Gardener's Club, towards Spout Lane and the Co-op.
1.5 No doubt about it! Two local residents recognised this as the former Primitive Methodist Chapel at 'Our Cox Green'.
2. ARTICLES, SELECTIONS, MAPS ETC.
2.1 The latest contribution from Jimmy Rutter - the Residents of Richardson Terrace, 29 Sept 1939. Cheers, Jimmy.
2.2 Every now and again, I'll highlight a page that regulars may have forgotten about. In this case, old train tickets.
