    I was researching a cd I have of dr Arnold loxam ( theatre organs) and found reference to the owners of the Durham Regal theatre built in 1934. The owners are listed as 3, Addison Road, Byker.
    Does this add to your history?

    I am a former Byker lad, aged 83 often on shields road. my grandfather had a music shop on Shields road. My uncle was in charge of building the Apollo and died while in charge of building the QUEENS COURT flats, bottom of Stanhope street!
    I see mention of the Pumphrey family…I knew Owen Pumphrey who died at 100 years.
    Mention of the Birder Reivers, I am from the Charltons of Wark, North Tyne

      Hello George, Thank you for your post. Why don’t you try to get along to our talk about the Pumphreys family on 11 December. All are welcome and I am sure you’d enjoy it. Chris (Secretary, Heaton History Group)
