The River past Newcastle is no longer maintained by dredging, but wouldn’t practically cause much of a problem, so an intrepid motorboat owner could push his way as far as Wylam.

First a few images. Hover your mouse over each thumbnail to read the subject matter. The operational dates above are surely not perfect. A ‘best effort’ at a sequence, if you will. If you can refine the information, do be in touch. Information on the history of ‘Blumer’ of Sunderland seems to be quite limited. But much of the data that follows is thanks to the efforts of Ray Ranns, who lives near Melton Mowbray in Leicestershire, U.

Ray has been most busy assembling data about the family history, building upon materials assembled by his father ‘Noel Blumer Ranns’. Of which John Blumer was one.

Fishing Vessels Much of the commercial success of Berwick Shipyard was derived from building fishing vessels. Here, fishing writer and researcher Graham Toward takes a detailed look at the yard’s output over the years. The first fishing vessel to be built at Berwick Shipyard under the Fairmile ownership was completed in , and was the first of a new design class named the Fair Isle trawlers.

This class was designed to replace older, larger vessels, and had much more economic running costs, and also required a smaller crew, therefore making them popular with owners. For the next few years, the yard was kept fully occupied with these boats, turning them out at a rate of about five a year. Most of these boats were destined for Aberdeen owners, although some worked from Granton, and two were built for England.

In total twenty two of them were built. This was a government financed scheme to encourage the replacement of an ageing fleet with new vessels. Through the scheme, low cost loans were available, and also there was the possibility of a grant towards the cost of the new vessel.

Contact Us Industrial Period – Industry is a term that describes a wide range of economic activities based on the sourcing, manipulation and movement of raw materials for commercial gain. In the modern era the term is used widely to describe activities as diverse as banking, computer software engineering and forestry, but in the period of industrial development between about and it is usually associated with the transformation of natural raw materials into useful products using water-power or coal as the primary source of energy.

During the course of the 19th century, coal replaced water as the main power source of industrial Britain. The Great Northern Coalfield had long been the biggest producer of coal in the country, and a variety of other industries became established on the banks of the Tyne and Wear by taking advantage of the abundant supply of cheap fuel. However, despite the apparent advantages of the region in terms of its coal supplies and access to waterways, its industrial development was not rapid, and until well into the 19th century it lagged behind other parts of Britain, such as West Yorkshire, Merseyside and Clydeside in the crucial fields of iron production and engineering.

Shipbuilding, too, was also held back by the terrible state of the rivers and by the continuation of the wooden shipbuilding tradition. This period of rapid growth in the 19th century, particularly after , was fuelled, critically, by a dramatic increase in North-East coal production, from 4. The coal industry fuelled the development of Tyneside and Wearside as the major industrial centres of the 19th century and, along with ready access to sources of other raw materials, such as iron, and access to markets via river and sea, was the main factor in the industrial success of the region.

The industrial development of the region was associated with large-scale social change. The recorded population of Newcastle rose from 28, in to , a century later, that of Wallsend from 3, to 30, in the same period, and the population of Gateshead from 15, to 50, in the half century after Large new housing developments grew alongside the major collieries, engineering and shipbuilding works, as well as in the commercial centres, while the new elite of industrialists built grand residences for themselves.

Due to summer holidays there is no branch meeting this month. However it is interesting to report we held our Annual Branch day out when we hired a coach to visit Lake Windermere. Also some members chose to take the train to Haverthwaite. Although it rained for most of the day we all enjoyed the day out very much. Most of our current Committee was re-elected en-bloc for the forthcoming season with new member David Pointon joining the committee.

Thanks to Phil and Adrian who both gave us very good presentations.

By the time of this view, the vehicle had been relegated to training duties. The view is of particular interest in that both fleet names appear, in Tilling style, on the side. A typical NBC waste of money. Everyone I knew always said they were travelling on “the Wilts”. Goodness knows what this is supposed to mean. It sounds like they were an afterthought! Whatever is wrong with good old-fashioned no-nonsense titles, that did what it said on the tin? Living in Ottershaw, I am often in and around Chobham but have not seen them in service there yet.
