The picturesque tree-lined avenue of Brotton contains some fine residences, including, just to the right of this picture, Brotton Hall, a fine Georgian stone house, now converted into a garage and filling station.

Memories of Brotton

Happy Memories Of A Simpler Time

I grew up in Brotton from aged 5 to 20, 1966 to 1981, living on Marshall Drive the whole time. My sister is still there. School was at the old primary school at the top of the hill, daily 1/3rd of a pint of milk, and extra if there were leftovers.

Bottom Of Our Street

This is looking down the street towards St. Margaret's church at the bottom on the right. The opening on the left leads to some bungalows on the left and further leads to the playing fields with swings, slides, sea-saws and football fields. (Now this leads onto an estate with new houses, hospital and school). Opposite the opening in the photo was located Brotton Hall Garage run by Bruce (garage now gone) selling petrol and doing car repairs. We lived in Cliffe Street which is just on the right of the photo next to the garage - this led to the Bowling Green and tennis courts and an open field where the travelling fair used to set up about once a year. Wilkinson's or the 'bottom shop' is just to the left of the picture and the local phone box was on the pavement next to that.
