D. Hughes

I was at Heddon on the Wall school as a teenager and lived at South Houghton. My mother was working for a Major Calverley Bewicke who was a race horse trainer at Close House at this time. He and his wife and family lived at what we knew as High Close and is the large house standing back from the driveway. I believe the Bewicke family were of long standing at this house for many years and believe Major Bewicke had been one of Montgomerys officers. During my time at Heddon school I worked all school holidays in racing stables. The teacher at that time was a Mr. Rewcastle. To the old photos - I can remember Kenny Malthouse, Tommy Tulip, John Hunter, Gilbert Noble and a boy Ferguson. The faces of others are familiar but the names escape me. I hope this little information is of use to you.

Ricky Nettleton

I lived there as a child from 1947 until 1958. I was surprised to see there was a website and entertained by all the local photographs. I now live in Sydney Australia.
Lived in Heddon for the last 18 years. Interests include gardening, travel, 'surfing' and have been known to win the occasional prize in the heddon village show!
Moved to Heddon in 1960 (aged 6) and moved away in 1970. I have many fond memories of Heddon. In the time that I lived there the village changed dramatically. New school (althougth it came in two bits), the building of the Bainbridge and Vallum housing estates, a new vicar (Rev Hay being replaced by Rev Farrence), a new Post Office after Willy Waugh died and our post-lady (Violet Waugh) retired, the new Co-op and the demolition of the old one together with the cottages behind to create a car park for the Three Tuns and Bays Leap open-cast mine was (eventually) exhausted to name but a few. Many recollections and people stick in my mind; the Village Show where I won 1st Prize for my hand-writing (its gone down-hill since!); sledgeing on the hill next to Tulips garage; the Headmaster (Mr Davison); my teachers at the school (Mrs Urwin and Miss Carse); village plays organised by Mrs Swan; singing in the choir under the leadership of Mr Hall the organist; the untimley death of my mother (Jayne Parker); delivering the Evening Chronicle in the old village centre and along the Military Road; my peers at school and other friends (John, Richard and Elizabeth Urwin, Andy Avery, Charlie Hay, Pamela Davidson, Gillian Armitage, Christine Jolly, Christine Bell, Roger Diggle, William Swan, Rodderick Wallace, John Calvert, Clive Jones, John Dean and many more.) I wonder where these people are today?

My grandparents lived in Heddon, and father and aunt were born and lived there when they were young. My father John Robertson was born in Heddon in 1925. His parents were Ann Walton Robertson, and John Robertson, sister Mabel Robertson. He recently passed away, and my mother and I are creating a memory book for his grandchildren. We are looking for people who may remember him?

Peter Rodgers

I am looking for any detail on George Bainbridge as he built my house for himself and I would love to know more about him. I think this media is a great way to enable the village to knit together as a community and perhaps get to know one another.
