Marias address in Scrogg Rd in Walker is still a main thoroughfare. To add to the tale, I worked on drilling rig with and Electrician from Clipstone Colliery, Notts, which must have been close to the location of Clipstone Camp where 2nd Lt. Thomas Lamb was accidentally killed in June 1916. Artillery accident maybe?

Lt Lamb was killed during hand grenade practice:

Hull Daily Mail 3rd July 1916

It was reported to the Notts Constabulary on Saturday that Second-Lieutenant Thomas Lamb aged 19, of the King's Own Yorkshire Light Infantry was killed on Friday whilst instructing men in hand-grenade throwing at a Notts camp. Sergt. Iverson and Private Bilney, who were alongside him in the trench, were very seriously injured.

I spent multiple summers down there as a kid, Uncle David (Arthur Goode's brother) lived there - cannot recall what colliery he worked in. They lived Clipstone/ Forest Town, and Worksop.
NCB were very active in getting miners to move into that area in 1960s - lots of north east men ended up down there at that time... ey-up-duck! (not sure if they still say that down there but it was the standard greeting in the 70s)

Janwhin says Harbour Inn Thomas Lamb was dead at 34 - and in Brussels too -wonder what killed him? rather young - I had a look in the papers expecting some sort of obituary but drew a blank again.

Not sure if it's worth showing old cards of Warkworth, place has not changed much! AND Mark Zuckerberg's drones will steal them as well.


Any-hoo.. here's that vicinity of the Lamb Inn (1904 postmark)

Over the road at the Hermitage Inn (with stabling ) they appear to have the pavement fenced off:

postally unused card but looks early.

That 'H. Myers' that had the Masons Arms was one Hannah Myers, shown on the 1891 census as a 49 year old widow, licensed victualler and publican.

Strange how you remember things, my parents were married in 1942 and rented an upstairs flat in Church Street. The person they had to see about the tenancy was John Robert Ballantyne who was acting for the Lamb Trustees, this ties in with the mention of building flats in Church Street.
