Re: The Wooden Bridge
I is here ! , and the wooden bridge in it's original angle iron and wooden planking was there in all it's grimy glory when I moved away back in 1943. A lot of character built into that bridge.The hills either side where our equivalent to the Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme,,jumping ,rolling down their bankings , digging a trench to defend against an enemy ,a bit like trench warfare, the ammunition? anything you could lay your hands on!. We had to cross the old bridge everyday when, going to the new Clegwell Senior Boys School,( as it was first named) officially opened just a few months before war was declared 3rd September 1939. That Wooden Bridge holds tons of memories for me and all that was happening in an around Hebburn U D C ' YEP' !
