Columbo, Sherlock Holmes...If the last word is either sanol or saniol, then three of the words could loosely relate to birth, new and health. Is there a site of an old hospital etc anywhere near there - either in one of the old buildings, or on the site of?? Shot in the dark.
Dammit, I'm turning into Columbo.......
That doorway was the entrance to the following . .Nobles, NH, I'm pleased you got there before the answer was revealed:
It does leave open other questions such as Deebex's "what does it represent?" and mine "what was the building before it was defaced by those awful banners?"
I suspect it's an abreviation of 'Trinity Chapel' ?This map from 1910 has the words Trinity Chap's printed over the area in question. I don't know what that is though..........
I don't know about 'before' the bomb exploded, but after it exploded quite a few bits of wreckage were found in various parts of Newcastle.Here is one (not very nice though), the Lockerbie plane flew over Newcastle city centre about 5-10 minutes before the bomb exploded.
Wow, it just showshow powerful the bomb/explosion really was, I mean we are talking a differencce of 50-60 miles if not more.I don't know about 'before' the bomb exploded, but after it exploded quite a few bits of wreckage were found in various parts of Newcastle.
Someone my wife knew, who lived at Cowgate, found a handbag from one of the passengers in her garden. The police came around to collect it off her and later confirmed that is was from the plane!
Hi Stamford, after studying this photo for quite a while, my best guess is that this is the back entrance to the old Baltic Tavern on Broad Chare. If it is then this would be Rowcastle Chare, but this is only a guess, i could be totally wrong.
The farm you have memories of did exist .. It sat adjacent to the old wagon way which later became used as a footpath. The farm land was re-developed in the 80's and Haydon Grange estate now sits on the land just south of the academy. The cycle track still exists though, it's just across the railway line on the old slurry pit.Hello all, new member here just hoping you might be able to put my mind at rest!
I had a vague flashback this evening to a small city farm a visited as a child - I'm sure it was called Benton Farm or Little Benton Farm and was located somewhere up a narrow footpath just off Coach Lane near the back of the old Manor Park school fields. I also have vague memories of a small bike track up there? Most of Coach Lane is now almost entirely new build so I doubt there is any trace of it now but I can't seem to find a single trace of either the farm of the bike track anywhere on the Internet! To the extent that I'm beginning to wonder if I just imagined the whole thing!
Anyone memories, or better still photos would be hugely appreciated thank you!
