Appeal launched to bridge Hexham Abbey funding gap
by Paul Tully, The Journal, March 24th 2011


AN appeal has been launched to make up the shortfall in funding to breathe new life into part of an ancient Northumberland church.

Campaigners are hoping to pull in the extra £400,000 needed to reach the £3m needed to transform the 13th-Century monastery complex attached to Hexham Abbey into a state-of-the-art visitor centre.

Already £2.6m has been raised, including £1.8m in Heritage Lottery funding.

The final campaign push was launched yesterday in the hope of raising the remaining funds within the next twelve months. It’s hoped the centre can attract up to 100,000 visitors a year, bringing more than £3m into Hexham.

Abbey Rector, Canon Graham Usher, said: “We have a once-in-500-years opportunity to reunite this historic site and restore it to its full role in the community.

“It is a tremendous project which will fully propel this historic place into the 21st Century and the next 1,000 years of its life.”

The visitor and heritage centre will include exhibitions displaying the Abbey’s historic artefacts, many of which have not been on view, plus meeting rooms as well as an education centre, an audio-visual theatre and a herb garden.

River Tyne hydro-electric plans move forward at Hexham
by Paul Tully, The Journal, April 7th 2011



AMBITIOUS plans to generate hydro-electricity from the River Tyne in Northumberland have been announced.

Feasibility studies are being carried out into placing a hydro turbine in the Tyne at Hexham for a scheme that could eventually power all the houses in the town.

Although the plans are at an early stage, Hexham Town Council is backing the initiative from Hexham Community Partnership and the environmental group Transition Tynedale.

If successful, the scheme would produce carbon-free energy going into the National Grid and bring financial rewards for shareholders.

Northumberland County Council has part-funded the feasibility study being carried out by Inter-Hydro Technology of Kendal, Cumbria.

And while it would take up to three years to get the river hydro scheme up and running, Hexham Community Partnership chair Bob Hull said: “We have been considering it for some time and believe it could be possible.

“It needs a specific head of water through a turbine and below the bridge on the Tyne at Hexham is the area we are looking at.

Emergency care will be put in place at Hexham
by Paul Tully, The Journal, April 29th 2011



THE emergency care crisis which left a top Northumberland hospital without night cover 14 times in four months will be at an end by June.

The recruitment of trained doctors will mean full emergency night staffing for Hexham General Hospital from June 1, Northumbria Healthcare director of medicine and emergency care Steve Russell told The Journal.

However, Mr Russell admitted there may still be four more nights in May when the hospital is left without accident and emergency cover.

A new specialist doctor taken on by reserve agency Northern Doctors Urgent Care will be based at Hexham for a guaranteed three nights per week from the start of June.

And with up to five A&E-trained doctors set to be added to the NDUC pool, there will be “effectively 100% cover”, Mr Russell said.

The unavailability of qualified doctors in the first quarter of 2011 has left ambulances being diverted 25 miles past Hexham to Newcastle, even for minor cases.

No acceptable offers made for Hexham properties
by Paul Tully, The Journal, May 10th 2011


NO acceptable offers have been made for Hexham's 'Crown Jewel' buildings, prompting the town's Mayor to call for them to be sold off for the best possible price to try and stimulate the Northumberland economy.

Outgoing Hexham Mayor and County Councillor Terry Robson, says the four prestigious former Tynedale District Council properties should now be turned to financial advantage by the county “for the best reasonable offer”.

Prospect House, Hexham House, The Old Grammar School and The Old Swimming Pool in Hexham town centre were put on the market last year and were expected to raise a combined £4m.

But no suitable offers have been received and the market appears to have dried up.

Anxious to preserve the heritage of the buildings, local authority watchdogs have carefully vetted potential buyers.

In continuation of

Hexham’s Prospect House could be used as a hostel
by Paul Tully, The Journal, June 15th 2011



A FORMER council headquarters could be used for youth hostel accommodation under plans put to its owners.

Hexham Community Partnership has suggested the 120-year-old listed building would be suitable for budget accommodation as well as an arts facility including artists’ studios.

Partnership chairman Bob Hull says the plans are “very provisional” and a response is still awaited from its owners, Northumberland County Council.

But in the absence of concrete offers for the £1m-valued property behind the Market Square, the building continues to be used for civic purposes.

Last year the Jacobean-style Prospect House was put on the market along with Hexham House, the Old Swimming Pool and the Old Grammar School.

But none of the buildings have yet been sold and the purchase deadline has been extended indefinitely.

Mr Hull said: “We are looking at the possibility of converting Prospect House and we have proposed that to the county council.

Refuge Huts found at Roman Vindolanda Fort & Museum
BBC Newcastle, Tyne News Website, 20th June 2011


The largest collection of shoes from the Roman Empire
was also discovered at Vindolanda


Archaeologists at the Roman Vindolanda Fort & Museum have unearthed dozens of circular huts which they believe could have been used as temporary refuges. The excavation at the site in Hexham, Northumberland, has unearthed various finds from Roman Britain including letters, murder victims and shoes.

It is thought the huts were built during the invasion of Scotland under Emperor Septimius Severus (AD 208-211). Dr Andrew Birley described them as "remarkable structures".

An earlier fort at Vindolanda was completely levelled for the construction of the buildings, which could number into the hundreds. The find has intrigued archaeologists at the site as Roman soldiers did not build round houses.

They are interested as to why the Roman army would go to such lengths to accommodate such unusual structures.

Platform boost at Hexham Railway Station
By Helen Compson, Hexham Courant, 20th June 2011


PLANS are afoot for a £455,000 development project that would provide level access to Hexham railway station’s eastbound platform.

Northumberland County Council is seeking funding to construct a 25 bay car park adjacent to the platform, linked by steps and a ramp providing access for the disabled.

The improvements would allow direct access for the first time to the platform that is currently only accessible via an old cast-iron footbridge.

An access road will also be created between the new car park and the A695, through the Tyne Mills Industrial Estate.

Although the proposal is at an early stage – a funding application has yet to be decided on by the Department for Transport – it has already drawn the backing of key organisations across Tynedale.

The county council is now awaiting the outcome of its application for £350,000 from the Government’s Access for All programme, which funds level access improvements at railway stations for people with mobility difficulties.

Hexham hydro power plan set for cash injection
by Alastair Craig, The Journal, June 27th 2011


Hexham councillor Terry Robson, at Hexham Bridge where the hydro may be built.

AMBITIOUS plans to harness the power of the River Tyne to create part of a town’s electricity supply could take a significant step forward this week.

The project team behind Hexham River Hydro is aiming to create a 100kw power generation plant on the banks of the river in Northumberland.

The scheme is currently in top spot in a national contest offering funding of up to £100,000 in grants.

Hexham River Hydro is up against 850 other projects hoping for a cash boost in the competition run by pro-green power group Energyshare.

With more than almost 400 supporters online, Hexham’s scheme hit the top spot on Friday with voting set to close on Thursday.

The Energyshare vote-off is backed by British Gas and River Cottage, the eco-friendly project faced by celebrity cook Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall.

Team member Gillian Orrell last night urged people in the North East to log on and cast a vote in the energy “X Factor” and push Hexham Hydro into the next round.

The 'Transition Tynedale' website states that benefits of the hydro plant would be enormous, adding: “It’s a long and big job, but incredibly exciting.”

Hexham’s bid can be seen at www.energyshare.com/hrhuntil and people have until Thursday to pledge their support.

Challenge to name new Prudhoe landmark building
by Tony Henderson, The Journal, June 28th 2011



IT IS KNOWN as The Building with No Name, but now people are being urged to change all that and come up with ideas for what will be a showpiece feature of a Northumberland town’s main street.

The regeneration charity Prudhoe Community Partnership is behind the new £1.5m building which is now taking shape on the town’s Front Street.

Designed by award-winning Newcastle architects Mosedale Gillatt, the community building is on the site of the former Prudhoe library, which was demolished earlier this year.



When it opens next spring, the building will house a new library and a range of voluntary and community groups and services which are currently based at the partnership’s Info Point 500 yards away on Front Street.

The partnership has launched an appeal for people to come up with a suitable name for the landmark. Yvonne Probert, project officer for Prudhoe Community Partnership, said: “It can’t go on much longer being called The Building With No Name. It hardly rolls off the tongue and wouldn’t sound good when answering the telephone.

“Prudhoe has no job centre or council offices, but now this building will be a one-stop shop for services, advice and guidance.

Go North East purchases Hexham Bus Station from Arriva
by Peter McCusker, The Journal, June 29th 2011


MAJOR regional bus operator Go North East has purchased Hexham bus station from rival Arriva as it looks to secure and improve its services in the area.

Go North East says it aims to ‘maximise the efficiency of its services in the centre of Hexham, to improve customer service and to safeguard local jobs’.

Go Ahead is one of the UK’s leading providers of passenger transport services and its North East service provider, Go North East, is the main bus operator in the North of England.

Neil Robinson, property manager, at Go Ahead, said: “This is a very important transaction for us as it secures our base in Hexham enabling us to improve the service we offer to our customers in that area.

GO are probably the best bus operator in the N.East so if they take over the majority of services to Hexham it can only be good for the town.

Historic Corbridge Station footbridge to get exact replica
by Paul Tully, The Journal, July 9th 2011



ONE of the earliest railway station footbridges in Britain – at Corbridge in the Tyne Valley – is to be replaced with an exact replica.

The cast-iron Corbridge Station footbridge, built in 1847, has been closed after coming to the end of its lifespan.

But now plans have been laid to have a modern steel replica in place by March 2012.

As Corbridge Station is a listed building, the replica bridge will need permission from Northumberland County Council.

Network Rail has commissioned structural engineers to devise the new bridge and the image shown here illustrates the similarity of design to the mid-19th-Century original.

Network Rail project manager James Hall said: “The old bridge is very much life-expired and no longer had the capacity for pedestrians to walk over it.

Corbridge Station was constructed in the 1830s as part of the Newcastle & Carlisle Railway which closely followed the Stockton & Darlington Railway and the famous pioneering engine, Stephenson’s Rocket, devised by George Stephenson of nearby Wylam.

Councillor demanding public meeting over Prudhoe Town Centre re-development plans
by Paul Tully, The Journal, July 20th 2011


A COUNCILLOR is pressing home demands for a full-scale public meeting over stalled town centre redevelopment plans.

Jennifer McGee, who represents Prudhoe North, has lodged an official request with Northumberland County Council for a meeting to air public concerns over the Duke of Northumberland’s proposals for Prudhoe town centre.

Coun McGee, who chairs Prudhoe Town Council, said: “I’ve had to stick my head above the parapet, but I’m entitled to do this.

“There has been a huge amount of public interest and concern over the redevelopment plans, and people have called for public meetings without it being progressed. I have got a lot of concerns myself, and as ward councillor for the area, people have also come to me with their concerns.”

Coun McGee’s move is the latest twist in a four-year saga which has seen the Duke’s plans approved, then challenged, and finally quashed by the High Court.

The proposals for 8,000 square metres of retail units, office space, 118 dwellings, 34 residential apartments, a decked car park, relocation of the United Services Club plus access and other alterations to Front Street were legally challenged by the Co-op.

A High Court judge agreed with the Co-op’s submission that not enough environmental impact data had been supplied to the former Tynedale Council planners when they gave the green light in 2009.

On the Old Adverts thread, the below edition of Newcastle Life magazine was featured, containing a LOT of adverts and articles from "Hexham in the 1960s" . . .

Volume 9, No. 69, June 1966 . . .





There are quite a few adverts for places in HEXHAM in this issue, starting with THE ROYAL HOTEL.

An important place (The Royal Hotel) for me personally. Both my parents worked in the hotel in the years before I started school, and I was partially 'brought up' by the hotel owner's (mentioned in the advert, 'Captain Gardner') Nanny, in the private quarters at the very top of the hotel.

I remember she was called Audrey, a very nice lady . . .

Volunteers join forces to benefit Hexham's Tyne Green Park
by Paul Tully, The Journal August 13th 2011


VOLUNTEERS have joined forces to set up a special group to oversee the development of a riverside park.

The Friends of Tyne Green Country Park in Hexham aims to get everyone working together to make the best use of the grassland area on the south bank of the Tyne.

The site has been owned by local authorities since it was opened as pleasure grounds for the public in 1887 in celebration of Queen Victoria’s golden jubilee. Now, in the approach of another monarch’s golden jubilee, people who use the Tyne Green facilities have teamed up with Northumberland County Council and other organisations including Hexham Town Council, Hexham Community Partnership and the Tyne Rivers Trust.

The first meeting of the Friends is set to take place at Tynedale Golf Club on Wednesday .

Tynedale Golf Club member Alex Kerr is the driving force behind the idea. He said: “Through this new group we hope to develop better communication between regular users of the park, as well as improving the quality of information available to visitors and developing better signage, information leaflets and web-presence.

The town council has opened a special playpark in the centre of the Green. A new cafe – Cafe Enna – is open and available for hire, and will form the main venue for the Friends’ group meetings. Sam Talbot, green spaces officer at the county council, said: “The vibrancy of parks such as Tyne Green relies on the active involvement of user groups.

Town Plan is vital for Hexham - former Mayor
by Paul Tully, The Journal, August 23rd 2011


A TEAM of councillors is pressing ahead with a Town Plan for Hexham which will take the town into the future. They will look at all aspects of Hexham, from industry to transport and leisure.

Former Mayor Terry Robson, who has played a pivotal role, says: “One of the most important things for growth in Hexham is our link with the west".

"The dualling of the A69 from Hexham through to Carlisle is very important, if we could open up that route to the west it would be so much better. The strategy route should not be the A66, which is further south and too often blocked by snow in winter. It should be the A69.”

The former mayor also wants to see closer integration of Hexham with the parishes of Acomb and Sandhoe to the north of the town. Sandhoe parish includes the industrial belt from Bridge End to Egger, close to the A69.

Coun Robson says: “I think Acomb, Hexham and Sandhoe should work very much more closely together. “We should be working hand-in-hand with the neighbours, and that doesn’t happen sufficiently now. “There are issues which are so important to all three communities and Hexham does not include the main industrial belt from Bridge End to Egger.

“That plot of land should be part of Hexham, but it is part of Sandhoe. “I feel there’s a lot of commonality between Hexham, Sandhoe and Acomb - and I would like to see a closer relationship between the three parishes.”

The Town Plan working group is being set up following a decision of Hexham Town Council to formulate a Town Plan.

There has been nothing similar in the last quarter-century and a wide range of topics will come under the microscope before a firm path ahead is laid.

People can shape Hexham’s future
by Paul Tully, The Journal, August 27th 2011


THE people of Hexham will be asked to help shape the future of their town. The expertise and views of the public could become an essential part of the Hexham town plan in the years ahead.

An inaugural meeting of the five-strong working group set up to pilot the plan has laid the early groundwork.

Coun Judy Lloyd, who heads the group, said: “We will be having a launch event, and asking for people to come forward with particular interests and expertise.

“This will be with a view to them being either on a steering group or, if they have a particular interest, perhaps put their name forward to be on the working group. We will welcome the views of the public.

“Our intention would be to alert as many people as possible to the fact that this process is starting and to encourage people who have areas of particular interest, or particular skills or knowledge, to come forward if they feel they could contribute.”

Coun Derek Kennedy, one of five town councillors on the initial working group, said it was hoped to involve community groups, such as the Hexham Partnership, schools councils and Churches Together.

“We have a joint objective to improve the lifestyle of Hexham,” he said, “and we are trying to bring a plan together as a combined body.

“There are lots of bodies, each with their own objectives, but there is no strategic plan for Hexham.

“We are at a very early stage of general investigation, but will report back to the town council in the near future.”

Well spotted!

The Hexham Courant mentioned the name change very briefly three weeks ago: http://www.hexhamcourant.co.uk/news/...th=home/2.3307

I understand that all the other Beales-owned stores have also changed to a Beales fascia - there were four more, I think, that still traded under their own names, in Yeovil (Denners), Bolton and Rochdale (Whitakers) and Southport (Broadbent & Boothroyds).

To be honest, it's hard to argue with these actions given that Robbs wouldn't exist at all if Beales hadn't bought it last year.

I imagine the change reflects Beales' desire for growth, both online and through its expanded store estate - now up to 33 stores from 11 before the Robbs takeover. As John Lewis, Debenhams and House of Fraser have all seemed to decide in the past, it's easier to build a nationwide, multichannel department store business under a single identity. However, there's always going to be an element of sadness at the loss of historic names that have so much resonance within their local communities.
