Blyth Boyhood

A Memory of Blyth

I went to St Wilfrid's Junior in Blyth. Great times, great memories. Rafts on the river at Cowpen, summer days up Humford and the hapenny woods. Days out at the Spanish City. Pit galas, the waltzer on the market place, chasing the girls along the links. The pictures twice a week football and cricket on the playing fields at Cowpen and then when we were older Monday night hops at the Roxy and going up to Newcastle to watch our Rock n Roll gods Buddy Holly, Eddie Cochran, Jerry Lee.
