Village guides are a unique new series of guides designed for the iPhone and iPads. They allow both the casual visitor and the long-time resident to have a fascinating insight into the past by telling the story of villages through text, audio and superb archive photographs. Set in the north-east of England, they bring the region’s particular mix of industrial and medieval past to light in a way that traditional guide books cannot match. They also have very useful information for the visitor such as listing where to park or finding out where the nearest cash-point is. Plus you can also find out somewhere great to eat. This village guide covers Bedlington. • Uncover the story of a gruesome murder that took place right in the town centre. • Find out about Bedlington’s place in postal history. • Discover the story behind Trotter who is commemorated by the Trotter memorial fountain. • Explore where the old mines in Bedlington used to stand. • Learn about Bedlington’s first theatre. • Identify one of the oldest post boxes in Northumberland • See photos of Bedlington’s very own stately home. • Read about the post-war emergency housing at Hartford. • Glimpse into the recent past with the story of the Wallaw Cinema that became Domino’s nightclub. • Learn about Bedlington’s earliest inhabitants and what they left behind. • Find out whether the Laird really lived in the “Laird’s House”? I hope that you enjoy it and that it encourages you to try out other village guides in the series, such as Blyth or Newbiggin-by-the Sea.
