I started to gather my many photos of the Heaton area together for a post and found around half of them were solely photos of Heaton Road so I though it deserved a page of it's own and the Heaton post will show up on this site at some stage in the near future. Don't forget that you can mail me if you want to see a particular part of Newcastle whether I've already published a page on that area or not.
Anyhoo, Heaton Road is the area that I grew up in in the 70's and 80's and I attended the nearby North View School which has now been demolished. If anyone has any photos of the school that they would like to share with readers of this site please get in touch.
A few pictures of Heaton Methodist Church on Heaton Road for readers Bob and Jean Carrick who were married there but are now living in the US.
Cloughs sweet shop(Cloughies") was, and still is, the best sweet shop in Newcastle, or possibly the world. :) The shop itself has remained largely unchanged in my lifetime and the feelings of nostalgia can be as overpowering as the smell of hundreds of different types of sweets when I enter the doors today. If you've never paid a visit before now is the time!
