I used to stay with an Aunt near Cotherstone, on a farm, for my holidays each year. I got used to going down to 'Barney' on the bus with her, but I never went shopping, I went fishing! I started here and went down to Lartington Bridge, crossed over and returned to 'Barney' to catch the bus back to North Gill farm, usually with a few trout for lunch next day!

I remember the old watermill, just on the West side of the bridge here, still working when I first went, then abandoned, later to be demolished, just after ny Aunt & kin moved to Alnwick area.

You have really done well here, the weather was kind to you, Keith

Thank you for the memories of the past, when I was just a youngun!

Cheers, mate. I have a family connection with the area too. On my mother's side I am descended from yeoman farmers from Romaldkirk, Thringarth, Langleydale and Staindrop. I have always felt a connection with the area.
