Unfortunately Hetton( le Hole)is about 10 miles north of East Hetton which is a bit east of Coxhoe. The Davy Lamp is shown on the 1890 6 inch OS map and I think it's still around, the map also shows a brewery and there may have been a pub called the Greyhound in East Hetton or maybe Kelloe until quite recently but I've not come across much else as yet.

Collie Dog was it one of the Catergory D villages that actually got demolished?

Hello Alec

Thank you for your trouble but it is East Hetton I am searching for, near the now village of Kelloe, it was demolished. Thank you for your help but the Atlas refers to a Hetton-le-Hole, towards Sunderland.Smile

Hello Jim, you've got it. It is that East Hetton we were looking for not (Hetton-le-Hole) for information regarding pub names, as we believe there were many.
East Hetton was demolished as a category D village.
Thanks for the info on the pubs you have displayed. We are from Coxhoe. We have an old map of the area but it does not name all the 'drinking places'.
Thanks again, much appreciated.Big Grin

A couple of other sources, in case you've not tried them, the 10 year census archive might with digging give you names and jobs of people in the area and the various commercial directories may again help, I've not used them enough to give you any direct pointers for East Hetton but they are probably good fun in their own right for a browse.

Is this the map you have?

1896 25in OS shows 6 or 7 boozers, mostly end terrace sites so probably just a single room in someone's house/shop but it does give street names, useful with the directories.

Bet the chapels had a busy time!

Glad that will keep you busy.

There is just one photo in East Hetton Colliery album, of a safety lamp, bit appropriate given the existing pub, so if your researches uncover any historic ones or you have the inclination to visit the site of the colliery or village to photograph what remains it would be good to see them.

I don't think that many of the Category D's met the end that DCC originally intended, there is one up the hill from me at High Westwood, Addison near Stella, Hamsteels and Cornsay Colliery did meet that fate but I'm not sure of any others.

Hi Jim,
I believe that Page Bank, north of the Durham metropolis that is now Spennymoor did disappear, you can see where some of the streets ran. A few years ago they updated the mine water pumping there.

Hi Colin,

I know poosticker83 has an interest in Catergory D's, there may be a worthwhile little article about how the policy influenced the built landscape of Co.Durham aided by the, slightly Stalinist, attitude of DCC (have you ever (tried to Bored ) read their bylaws relating to railway lines designated as footpaths?), must try and rope in Karl Marx elsewhere on AditNowDevil

Jim

It may be Page Bank was "sunk" by the Wear, even DCC don't control that !!

The British Newspaper Archive is worth a look (sadly its not free, but i have a subscription)

Inquests into deaths often seem to happen in pubs.
Heres one, but its one you already have:-

Durham County Advertiser - Friday 30 June 1905
Deputy-Coroner Salkeld opened an inquest at Bradyll Arms Inn. East Hetton. Coxhoe. on the bodies

Fine work Collie Dog,

You clearly take after your site name, my collie is too inquisitive for his own good at times!

Research can be great fun and it's much easier now with the internet but there is more still lurking in county and other archives. It's worth saying that Chris, and many others on AditNow, know much more than me about the routes into finding information about things.

So keep at it and add what you can to the site and it's even more enjoyable if you can cajole the family into the obsession.

Jim

Hi Collie Dog,

Can I just ask if you've have just tried to download a photo/image?

You may find it will work if you save it as a jpeg to your private album or a specific mine site ie East Hetton and then attach it to your post.

Sorry I was beaten by your latest post.

Jim

If you still have a problem I will try and guide you through the process, it's dead easy once you've done it once.
