School Days

A Memory of Cockfield

Little did I know that when I first visited Cockfield when playing for my school football team ( Middleton in Teesdale) that one day I would make my home in this lovely village after having been all round the world in the forces, and that I would feel so welcome, the people are so friendly and down to earth, it was like coming home again, although it is less than 20 miles from where I was born and bred I seem to have the best of both worlds, the Teesdale hills and the Cockfield fells will always have a special place in my heart

Can anybody help me, several bricks have turned up on Eston Nab near Middlesborough around the ironstone mine sites
stamped with the word PESCOD, according to my records there was a brickworks at Cockfield whose owner was J Pescod
in about 1856. Any information would be useful so the National Brick Index can be updated.
