I wonder if us lot that lived in Crawley/ Blue house area were a bit cut off from the rest of Hebburn as regards games.
Hebburn Cemetery sort of cut us off from the rest of Hebburn.
Lambley Crescent was the only link to the rest of Hebburn and most of us were the younger ones as our end was the last to be built before the council houses came in around 1950 ish.
We picked up stuff by visiting relations down in Hebburn and Jarrow. I don’t recall much connection with BillQuay other than school. It was a long way from the ”Rezzer” to Bill Quay Bridge, all fields. Only name was Walter Gallon from the farm near the bridge.
