A Memory of Beadnell

I trained racehorses on this beach from 1967 t0 1970. My stable was behind Beadnell House Hotel and I and my family lived just off Swinhoe Road in a cottage which was just behind the Dunes. Happy days. I also spent many a family holiday in Bamburgh and Seahouses in my childhood, I had an uncle who was Golf Pro at the Seahouses Golf Club in the 1940s. I was born in Newcastle, my family moved to Richmond, Yorkshire in 1936 when I was 6 weeks old. My dad trained racehorses in Richmond unti 1951.
