Looks like the final unit left within phase 2 at Sanderson Arcade will become a Italian Restuarant and Champagne Bar, which will open in the Spring, according to this recent letting plan.

Mrs Wilf will be pleased by that! She can look at frocks and stuff, while I keep out of mischief at the Joiners or the new 'spons.

St Mary's Asylum, Stannington.

I was flicking through a link which some shared on another thread and came across this beauty...


(courtesy of 'shepy' http://www.shepy.co.uk/blog/category/newcastle/)

I never even knew it existed!! But after doing some digging I found that its Grade II listed? Although from the above picture, it would seem that a lot of it has now been demolished after comparing it with Google Maps imagery.

Any ideas what the plans are with it? Wish I had explored it before the demolition experts moved in

A PIECE of wartime history has been unearthed at a former Northumberland war hospital.

Workers in Stannington have discovered a unique mural of Winston Churchill buried deep in the bowels of St Mary’s hospital.

The artwork, believed to date from 1943, is now set to go under the hammer to raise cash for modern-day soldiers.

North East homebuilder Bellway is developing St Mary’s, which was built as an asylum in 1910.

The Grade-II listed building has been empty since 1995, but after a lengthy planning wrangle is now being transformed into apartments.

On the old Co-op department store in Ashington had its shutters open today. The windows were covered in paper though, so there was no seeing inside. I hope it's not going to be too long till it's open.

The old Co-op shutters were open again and there's a Chinese buffet due to open soon on Woodhorn Road (where the Galley cafe was near Specsavers).
I was in Morpeth today and Monsoon is opening tomorrow. I had a meal in Wetherspoon's and it's so nice in there. They had ran out of vinegar, even though it's the steak club and many people like it with chips.

Ashington fire station could become creativity hub
by David Black, The Journal, March 23rd 2011


Volunteers, outside the old Ashington Fire Station

A FIRE station which closed as part of a major shake-up of 999 services in Northumberland could be given a new lease of life as a flagship centre for creativity.

The Ashington station was one of four closed down under the multi-million pound reorganisation of the county’s fire and rescue service.

Now ambitious plans have been unveiled to use the vacant building as a community hub aimed at nurturing and developing the creative talents of local people.

The project involves the redundant property being turned into a base for a community radio station, community TV studio, an audio production suite, a video editing suite, music recording studio, media centre and a site for 3D productions.

It is planned that the ‘community media hub’ would offer people training, employment, skills learning and enterprise opportunities.

The Chinese is open and I believe that it's called Yum Yums. It's about £6 till something like 5:30pm and about £10 if you get in before 10:30pm.
The old Co-op had some fridges delivered on Wednesday. I can't imagine it'll be that long till it opens. It'll be nice to see the place open.
Curry's is closing soon.

Shops give backing to aggrieved Ashington Market traders
by David Black, The Journal, April 8th 2011


A ROW, which has soured the high-profile relocation of a street market in Northumberland, could be resolved after local shopkeepers gave their backing to aggrieved market traders.

Ashington’s Tuesday market was switched from a car park area to the town’s pedestrianised shopping precinct two months ago in a bid to boost its fortunes and attract more business.

The move was immediately hit by controversy when food traders working from large vans were barred from going on to the new site.

It was argued the vans would spoil the appearance and character of the new-look market – and resulted in several traders being forced to stay on the old John Street site.

Now county council bosses are set to agree a compromise, and carry out a three-month trial during which the specialist vans will be allowed onto the new location.

Market traders have submitted a 155-name petition to the council calling for the decision to ban the vans to be reversed.

New £3.5 million investment launched at Morpeth’s Sanderson Arcade!

Event: Launch of Sanderson Arcade Second Phase

Date: Wednesday April 20th 2011

Time: 10:45am

Morpeth’s fantastic new shopping line up will be officially launched next week – bringing more jobs and investment into the town.

The second phase of the Sanderson Arcade development was completed earlier in the spring – and the new businesses which have taken space at the award winning shopping centre will be officially opened on Wednesday April 20th.

The work, completed on schedule by local contractors Mansell, represents a further £3.5 million investment in the town with 50 new jobs being created. It completes the retail line up in the Arcade’s impressive piazza area.

Up market maternity and baby wear specialist JoJo Maman Bebe is one of the new retailers joining the line up after choosing Morpeth over other shopping destinations to house the company’s first North East store.

Monsoon and Mountain Warehouse have also opened new stores at the centre. The final unit in this phase of works is to be occupied by an independent bar and restaurant which will open later in the summer – other new developments at the centre will be announced at next week’s launch.

400 jobs created at Sanderson Arcade, Morpeth at height of recession
by David Black, The Journal, April 15th 2011


A FLAGSHIP shopping centre has bucked the national trend by creating 400 jobs in a Northumberland market town at the height of the recession.

Developer Dransfield Properties has successfully delivered the £35.5m investment involved in Morpeth’s showpiece Sanderson Arcade scheme despite the economic slump.

Next week the Yorkshire-based company will officially open the second phase of the centre, completing a project on which construction work started in the summer of 2008.

Yesterday it was revealed the arcade has brought a total of 400 jobs to the town, about 100 more than Dransfield had originally expected.

The figure – which is a mixture of full and part-time posts – emerged from a recent official count of the jobs being provided in the 27 retail units.

Treat in store for Foodies as The Corbridge Larder Comes to Sanderson Arcade!

It already has a reputation in the North East for being a food lovers’ paradise – now The Corbridge Larder has chosen Morpeth’s Sanderson Arcade as the location for its second delicatessen and coffee shop.

And though the company prides itself on high quality traditional products and good old fashioned value, it was through the bang up to date social networking site twitter that The Corbridge Larder’s owner Dave Robinson was first encouraged to come to Morpeth.

The Corbridge Larder has more than 3,000 followers on twitter and after one customer tweeted that the company should open up in Northumberland’s County Town of Morpeth Dave Robinson decided to take a look at Sanderson Arcade.

Now the award winning company is fitting out its brand new 2,000 sq ft deli and coffee shop in a unit adjoining Morpeth Bus Station at the Arcade which will house a 40 seat coffee shop as well as a fantastic 25 ft deli counter and a take out coffee bar when it opens in late May.
