The square mile around Path Head is packed with history, and I am currently researching the roughly triangular area within these three points:  Blaydon Burn House, Stella Hall, and the Black Bull on Bridge Street.

There is a wealth of material already available, but I would love to hear from anyone who has family photos, stories or information to contribute. Please get in touch.





My list of people who have helped with this book is getting longer by the day!  When the book is finished, I will upload some of the original research of contributors, notably John Terence Arthur of Woodside.  Here is his most recent discovery:
