I wonder if the Guthries had a cabin at Ovingham as it was a popular place to have a holiday home beside the river Tyne. I had a weeks holiday there in the 50s, and another week at Whitburn about 4 or 5 mls from home..
My grandson has been to Cyprus, Portugal, Spain, Tenerife and he's not 6 yet.
How times have change.
When we were at the farm in Whitburn in a caravan I walked up the sloping field and at the top I could see the Slag Heap 4 miles away.Our Estate was just behind it
