Just below the bridge on the ovingham side most of the lads learned to swim and through stones at
what we thought was rats now I know they were water voles a much endangered species .Waste from Corbridge and other places flowed into the Tyne untreated we would be there all day with a fire going and you had to bring some wood if you wanted to share the fire. No drugs in them days in fact I can not remember any one smoking. No names no pack drill.
